ANTIQUE GOLD GARNET DIAMOND ENAMEL BRACELET w LOCKET
Price: $2750.00
Antique Victorian 18 carat gold, cabochon garnet, diamond and enamel bracelet with mourning or lover''s locket at the back. Circa 1860-80. Measures 7 1/8 inches long. Weighs approx 20 grams. The links of the locket are outstanding - in the form of foliage graded in size - clover leaves in 3-dimention, so finely made that the links going one through the next cannot easilly be seen. Smallest links towards the clasp on either end, increasing in size towards the center. The center is a large cabochon garnet (approx 1 1/8 inches long) amidst swirling foliage and a pair of sky-blue-enamelled forget-me-nots, set with diamonds on either side. The back of the bracelet has a small locket containing the hair of a loved one. The hair is original and still in it''s neat braid. Clasp is so well made that it is difficult to distinguish when closed. A safety chain for extra security shows that the bracelet was considered an expensive, luxury item at the time of it''s manufacture. The bracelet itself is not hallmarked, but tested for at least 18 carat gold. Condition is original and generally very good. The enamel on the tip of one tiny petal partially lacking, which is not visible except when viewed with magnification as in the ''photographs.
