Story

All manner of bracelets graced the wrists of the ladies of the Edwardian eras. The later decades saw the likes of bangles, flexible, bead, ribbon and especially link bracelets.

One of the more popular styles was the curb link bracelet displayed here. Not like its typical peers of the time, this august bracelet has a higher 15k yellow gold content. Each of the thick oval loops has been diamond cut, i.e. with fine, sharp edges which allow the twisted links to lie flatly and smoothly with no damage to the skin. The solid gold bracelet has been finished with a fashionable heart shaped padlock clasp (which needs no key) and a link safety chain for additional security.

Date: 1900.
