Fabulous Victorian Diamond Cuff Bracelet
The wide hinged cuff bracelets are typically seen in silver. Here we have one which in all likelihood was worn by a woman of means. The bracelet was one of the more popular jewelry articles of the Victorian era and was often worn in multiples of two to four on each arm. Plain, gem-set, narrow or wide these bracelets were a fashion statement of the day.
A wide expanse of 14k yellow gold encompasses the wrist with a silken smoothness which only can be brought about by decades of treasured wear. Fine in workmanship and substantial in mass, the front is adorned with a spectacular flower within a stylized foliate design. One floral element is embellished with a mix of nine (9) old mine and cushion cut diamonds and the other has six (6) rose cut diamonds for a total estimated weight of 1.35 carats (I-J color range; SI1 clarity) with all of the gems in coronet mounts. A tongue and groove clasp and safety chain finish the piece.
Date: Circa 1890.
