The ultimate in a padlock curb link bracelet comes down to us in near mint condition from circa 1900.
Chunky, large and weighty, every other luxurious link is textured for contrast against the high-polished gold all of 9k.
It is hard to know what is most appealing. Is is the rich 18k gold color (although this is entirely 9k as are almost all bracelets of this type)? Or is it the sculptural, tactile weighty gold? Perhaps it is the patterns that impart such a rich look against the plain links.
Whatever the stand-out feature, this has it all. No key required, just depress down and inward to release the gold heart shaped lock. Includes a safety chain for added security.
