Here we have a rare and very collectible Georgian era Cut Steel bangle in impeccable condition.
Cut Steel jewellery has been documented in England from the early 18th Century (some argue it was in use as far back as the 16th Century!) and designs were made for a wide variety of items; from buckles to brooches, earrings to hair pins, shoe buckles and everything in-between.
The basic design of cut steel jewellery is a thin metal baseplate onto which closely placed steel studs were riveted, closely resembling the sparkle of the cool grey rose cut Diamonds that were so popular during the early 1800's.
Making cut steel jewellery was an incredibly labour-intensive process, only adding to its inherent value, and the fact they could rust if left in damp conditions means that items preserved in excellent condition, like this bangle, are few and far between, and highly sought after.
We adore the simple design, and the balance between feminine sparkle and edgy makes this wonderful antique bangle a thing to covet!

This wonderful Georgian Cut Steel bangle is in excellent condition for its age. Cut Steel can rust easily if not kept in a dry place so it's clear to see the bangle has been well looked after for an incredible 200 years! We really can't sing the praises of this bangle enough! There are no missing, damaged or loose steel rivets, and no rust or dis-colouration (which again is a common ailment of cut steel jewellery). It's easy to wear and looks fantastic with anything from a jeans and tee to a black tie event.
