Slip-on bangle bracelets have been a mainstay of women’s jewelry since their heyday around the turn of the 20th century. Typically American in origin, examples can be found in a variety of widths and styles, whether plain, ornate, gem set or hand engraved.
In a harmonious balance, the eye moves from the patterned surfaces and line work of this stellar bracelet, to those luscious rubies and fiery diamonds.
The entire surface of this 14k yellow gold bracelet is a canvas for intricate hand engraved flowers and scrolling patterns.
The front holds two natural unheated rubies cut in bullet-shaped cabochons that total .60 carats. On each side rests an old European cut diamond. They total .36 carats and their color is white to the eye at H-I, clarity of SI1-3.
Placed at the center of a six-petaled flower an antique diamond acts as the disk of a bloom. All gemstones are bezel set for a clean look. To be worn solo or in multiples, this genre of bracelet lends itself to virtually any occasion.
A sight to behold, the engraving is superb and lyrical with its curves, scrolls and flourishes that reflect and seem to move light around the surface. In superb condition and of 14k yellow gold.
