Yes, this indeed feels as good as it looks. And who can argue that the French do not know their impeccable way to make jewelry look as luxe and enticing as possible.
In 18k deep, rich gold, this link bracelet mixes hammered gold with spirited royal blue sapphire and rose cut diamonds. Weighty, its tactile feel on the wrist just says, "wear me".
Six old cushion cut natural sapphires give off cobalt and peacock blue hues. Each is bezel set and then surrounded by rose cut diamonds.
On the curving curb links, rose cut diamonds surround the azure blue gemstones. Five rest on each curve for a total of 70 rose cut diamonds that weigh .35 carats with a color of J-K, and clarity SI2-I1.
Unusual for the era is the use of hammered gold. Often seen from the 1970's onward, this imparts a marvelous touch to the bracelet. Weighty, there is just something about this piece of jewelry that is unmistakable.
