Story

The Riker Brothers firm was an integral member of the venerated cabal of American jewelry manufacturers located in Newark, New Jersey from the 1800s through to the 1950s. This small city became the core fabricator of the jewelry of the Art Nouveau and Beaux Arts eras and developed into the jewelry manufacturing capital of America. In 1801, this small collection of manufacturing firms launched the well known slogan, “Made-in-America”.

Slip-on bangle bracelets have been a mainstay of a woman’s jewelry wardrobe since the 1800s. To be worn solo or in multiples, this genre of bracelet lends itself to virtually any occasion. The entire surface of the 14k yellow gold bracelet is a canvas for an intricate hand engraved foliate pattern.

The front of the piece is set with a trio of gems – a round faceted ruby of an estimated .50 carats flanked on each side with an old European cut diamond with a total estimated weight of .20 carats for the pair. The ruby and the diamonds are each placed within the center of a striking flowerhead design

Date: Circa 1900.

Date: Circa 1900.

Measurements: 7-1/4 inches (18.5 cm) in length by 3/8 of an inch (1.0 cm) at the widest. Circumference of 7 1/8 inches (18 cm) and will fit a wrist of about 7 1/2 inches or less down to a very small wrist 6 inches or so. Weight of 11.7 grams (7.5 dwt).

Hallmarks: Very faint 14k; Riker mark. Guaranteed as Riker.

Condition: Very good; two indentations to the side and back which although they can be felt are very difficult to detect with the eye. Priced at a superb value given these small foibles.

Origin: American.

Note: Stones were not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. All weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
