This is one of the most beautiful and most unique bangles we've ever had in our collection so far!
It would have been made during the late 19th Century or the very early 20th Century and features the most gorgeous vibrant purple Amethysts in a pretty Rose Gold cased setting.
Pure gold is far too soft to use on its own, therefore it is often alloyed with other metals to makes stronger and more durable items. "Gold cased" jewellery was a precursor to gold plating, and generally had a thicker coating of gold than rolled Gold or Gold plated jewellery.
We love the feminine, undulating curves, and of course the colour combination is gorgeous!
It comes complete with the original safety chain so you can wear with confidence every day!
ERA: Art Nouveau (1890-1910)
MEASUREMENTS: Weight: 10.2g
Internal circumference of 6.5", to fit a wrist of 7" or smaller
The amethysts range from 2.5mm to 4mm in diameter
MATERIALS: Amethyst, 9ct Gold Casing
HALLMARKS: None present. Tested as 9ct Gold cased.
VERY GOOD: This bangle is in remarkable condition for its age. The Rose Gold casing has been polished to a beautifully high shine and all of the gemstones are original and intact. There are no chips, cracks or abrasions to the beautiful vibrant Amethysts, and the bangle opens and closes perfectly.
As with most antiques there are some areas of wear consistent with 100 years of age. The front of the bangle is perfect but there is a small ding to the back. There is also a small area inside the bangle near the hinge where the Gold casing has either worn away, or more likely has been tested by a previous jeweller. Of course you can't see either of these things when the bangle is worn, and in our opinion doesn't detract from this beautiful piece of history.
