Story

If not the giant hub of American jewelry manufacturing hub of America, then Newark, New Jersey is most definitely among the greatest. From those hallowed halls comes a bracelet of 14k yellow gold. Designed and crafted by one of those wonderful firms, Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss Co. had the reputation as a maker of exceptional and fine jewelry during the 1900s.

Cardinal characteristics of Art Nouveau give this hinged bangle panache without fuss. Open work design of 14k gold displays two dimensional decorative patterns with curvilinear contours of stylized and intertwined organic forms. The curving design is dotted with six (6) round faceted Ceylon sapphires with a color of ethereal blue and a total estimated weight of 1.50 carats. The bracelet is round in shape with a configuration akin to a slip-over bangle yet is hinged and has both a box clasp and a safety chain for additional security.

Date: Circa 1900.
