A bold vintage bracelet from a bold designer, the one and only YSL! Intertwined oblong engraved links make this an extremely unique item. I believe this bracelet is gilt over brass and it hasHEFT! I'm not going to write a lengthy description, because the photos will say what needs to be said.....although, it is my opinion that this bracelet actually looks much better than the photos show it to look! Definitely a showstopper that is sure to bring many compliments. Yves Saint Laurent jewelry from this time period is not easy to find.....quite different in appearance than the new pieces still being made today.
Condition: Very Good Condition
There is some very slight wear to the finish, but nothing that is very objectionable. On the underside there are several tiny patches of verdigris and these do appear much more evident in the photos than they will when you see the bracelet. Overall, this bracelet is in on the high end of "Very Good Condition."
This stunning bracelet is NOT for the small wrist...I have a small wrist (5 ½") and I cannot keep this cuff on my arm. Obviously, if I could, it might not be appearing here for sale in my shop, because I do love a bold cuff bracelet. But, alas, it just won't fit and I would not advise anyone to try to clamp it tighter to one's wrist, as I believe it would not give as some cuffs will. It will not shape to your wrist as a sterling silver cuff will do. Being gold plated brass, it just does not have the play that other metals do. It's very rigid and will certainly look lovely on a larger wrist.
Inner Measurement: 6" plus opening of approximately 1 ½"
Outer Measurement around front of Cuff: 7 1/8"
Width of Bracelet: 1 1/8"
