The Etruscan style was popular in the Victorian and Edwardian era. Travel enabled the people living in those times to find out more about history and culture in other countries and most importantly what jewellery they used to wear!
This Edwardian 9ct Gold Ruby and Diamond Etruscan style bangle is a perfect example of how the Edwardians were influenced by other cultures to create this unique style of jewellery, and we are certainly glad they did because this bangle is completely stunning!
We think it looks like a portal into another universe on your wrist with the masterfully created "gypsy settings" for the beautiful Diamonds and magical, juicy red Rubies. They look like stars bursting out and shining gloriously, twinkling delicately against the warm and inviting antique Gold sky!
The Gold embossed detailing and metalwork adds a superb depth and texture to the bangle. We adore the pretty leaf framework!
As light as a feather but with all the impact, we think this bangle is the perfect accessory, it's so easy to dress up or down

EXCELLENT: This Edwardian 9ct Gold Ruby and Diamond Etruscan style bangle is in amazing condition. It is fully hallmarked made in the year 1904, making it over 110 years old. The Gold is a gorgeous and comforting tone, all the Gold is still sharp and doesn't seem to have been rubbed down at all, which is incredible. Both the Diamonds and Rubies are in perfect condition. The clasp opening is working admirably, opening and closing with ease. This bangle has many more moons of wear and we shall be so sad to let this one go!
