Victorian Link Bracelet with Bejeweled Hand Clasp
Faceted hollow cylinders of 15k yellow gold embellished with surfaces textured with engraved patterns of acorns and oak leaves alternate with ornate interlocked links of yellow gold to form a smashing chunky bracelet from the mid 19th century. The clasp is one of the most sought after closures in jewelry – the hand of a lady. Grasping a gold ring is an engraved and textured hand dressed with a rectangular cut ruby “ring” on the pinky finger and an oval cabochon garnet on the wrist. The underside of the hand shifts the delicate motif to a hand clutching a snake with the head and its tiny eyes and mouth incised into the metal. Some parts of the clasp have been hand engraved.
Measurements: 8 inches (20.5 cm) in length by 7/16 of an inch (1 cm) in width. Weight of 18.6 grams (11.9 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; tiny separation of gold at the side of the hand; general light wear as expected with age and use.
Origin: Possibly English in origin.
