Antique French Rose Cut Diamond and Genuine Sapphire Bracelet
This lovely antique bracelet was made in France near the end of the Victorian era. The gently curved panel was hand carved in silver, backed with solid 18k gold and set with glittery rose cut diamonds, an old mine cut diamond and genuine sapphires. The edges are all finely millgrained to enhance the delicate nature of the design. The contrast of the bright, sparkling diamonds against the darkened silver is quite beautiful and lends an elegant femininity in such a way that isn’t too showy. The jeweled centerpiece connects at either end to a unique chain link bracelet that is also silver atop gold. The French hallmarks are located on each of the last bracelet links as well as on the clasp itself. The clasp holds very tightly and there is a safety mechanism on the side for added security. The length is 6-3/4” and the width at the widest point is 1/2”. This is such a stunning piece of jewelry that you really need no special occasion to justify wearing it! In fact, it’s dainty scale makes quite easy to wear casually. However it would also make a wonderful wedding bracelet!
