Elaborate Vintage Sterling Cloisonné Enamel and Pearl Bracelet
This is such a unique bracelet! It is impressively enameled inside and out in elaborate floral designs that are three dimensional and vibrant in color. The bracelet is divided into two curved panels, the outsides of which are decorated with a ground color of rich cobalt blue, curling leaves of emerald green and clusters of sky blue blossoms. Each of the eighteen flowers has a genuine pearl nestled in the center. Unfolding the two panels at the hinge reveals that the inside is equally as beautiful! The motif slightly varied, this time with purple flowers growing on thin stems with sprouting green leaves atop a contrasting orange backdrop. There are no marks to be found so I cannot say for sure when or where it was made but it’s clear that a lot of thought and skill went into crafting this work of art! The metal tests as sterling silver and has a buttery yellow gold vermeil finish. When closed the bracelet is close to round and measures across from 2-1/8 from hinge to clasp and 2-1/4 from the center of one panel to the center opposite. The width of the panels is 1”. The best fit will be on a wrist that measures between 6 and 6-3/4”.
