Antique French 5ctw Diamond Bracelet in 18k Gold and Silver

     One of the things that I love most about my job is that I’m able to see and hold and experience so many pieces of authentic art.  Objects that were handcrafted by true masters of their craft. Artists of metal and stone, who came up with the designs, started with the most basic and pure of materials and transformed them into a thing of such beauty that it still rings true with every viewer, even well over a century later.  Authenticity; it’s an old concept these days, but it’s something that cannot be faked, and something that should not be forgotten.

     This French bracelet was handcrafted of 18 karat gold in France around 1890 with an eye to detail and fantastic craftsmanship.  It is comprised of 12 plaques, each round floral link contains a center old European cut diamond of about .25 carats which is surrounded by four petals set with rose cut diamonds. Connecting each round link is a stylized leaf and bud, set with an additional 4 lively rose cut diamonds. All in all, the bracelet contains 108 silver set diamonds which add up to an approximate total weight of 5 carats. The tongue of the hidden clasp is marked with French hallmarks, one an eagle head, the other a maker's mark. It has loops for a safety chain, but it is missing, I can easily have my jeweler add one upon request. The bracelet is 7.25 inches long and about .65 inches wide and weighs 29 grams.    

     Authentic, important and really, truly fabulous, this bracelet is sure to make any woman swoon!
