Riker Bros. Emerald & Diamond Bangle Bracelet
This signed Riker Brothers bangle was and remains the apex of desire and perfection for the turn of the 20th century and into the next. Luxurious in antique 14k yellow gold, the entire surface of the bracelet is hand engraved with an Art Nouveau floral motif. Swirls and scrolls and curves flourish in 360 degree of pure freedom. The front is embellished with a centered old European diamond flanked with four (4) natural emeralds in a square setting, a pair for each side. The interior circumference is smooth as silk from a century of embraces.
Date: Circa 1900.
