Arts & Crafts Merrle, Bennett and Co. Gold Moonstone Bracelet

This fabulous bracelet was made by the firm of Murrle, Bennett and Company, an Anglo-German firm started by Ernst Murrle and J.B. Bennett, which produced pieces for retail by the store 'Liberty and Co.', the famous London Arts and Crafts dealers. The company was in existence from 1886-1914, this bracelet was most likely made around 1900. They specialized in high quality affordable silver and gold jewelry. They produced pieces predominately in the Art Nouveau style, as their designs were often characterized by abstract motifs typical of this movement, often comprised of Celtic inspired interlacing elements, stylized foliate forms, pierced geometric shapes, luminous enamels and precious or semi-precious stones. After World War I, the company was renamed White Redgrove & White. Murrle Bennett & Co jewelry is now highly sought-after and widely collected.

This antique late Victorian antique moonstone and gold bracelet was handcrafted in London, around 1900. It features three oval cabochon cut moonstones, set in 9 karat gold. The largest stone lies in the center and measures 13.8 x 12 x 6.3 mm, while the two side stones measure 11 x 9.2 x 5.1 mm. It’s seven inches in length and weighs 12.8 grams. It’s marked, ‘9ct’, and has a maker’s mark that reads, ‘MB c’, which is the mark of Murrle, Bennett & Co. The clasp holds a safety chain so you’ll never have to worry about accidentally losing or dropping it!

This is the kind of jewelry that I personally love to wear. The clean lines, the smooth and luminous moonstone gems, the weighty feel and fantastic details, all speak to my soul.
