What a beautifully romantic antique Victorian Paste bracelet!
The bracelet consists of rows of antique Paste flowers intricately intertwined, and a warm Rose Gold filled curb chain fastening.
The precious Paste gemstones have the most beautiful champagne colour and the bracelet is cleverly articulated, so it's comfortable to wear and will catch every glimmer of burnished candlelight over dinner.
It truly is one of the most unique and enchanting antique bracelets we've ever seen!
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: 7.7" in circumference to fit 7.2" wrist. 20mm at widest, paste embellishment measures 67mm long.
MATERIALS: High purity (at least 900) Silver, Paste, Gold fill chain.
HALLMARKS: The two marks on the underside of the Silver setting remain unidentified although they are undoubtedly marks for Silver. They don't match any European standard marks or Makers we are familiar with after extensive research, so perhaps this one is from further afield?
This beautiful antique Victorian Paste bracelet is on good, ready to wear condition, and is full of authentic charm. The articulated Silver setting is of solid construction, and still has it's full range of movement so it's flexible and comfortable to wear. All of the gorgeous Paste gemstones are all original Victorian and set securely. They are well-matched light champagne colour which suits the bracelet nicely. As with the majority of antiques this bracelet does have some signs of previous use. The Paste gems do show some light abrasions to the facet edges, and have taken on a softer, more romantic feel than they would have had new. Also one of the smaller Paste gems surrounding the central "flower" is chipped, although this is noticeable on close inspection.
The Rose Gold filled chain section is likely a later addition but looks fabulous nevertheless! This addition has been done very well and with sympathy to the original jewel, so much so that they really appear to belong together. The Rose Gold has a beautiful warm tone and great shine, and the bolt ring works perfectly. There is also a discreet matching safety chain so you can wear this beautiful bracelet completely at ease.
