This is a museum piece. But I know someone out there will love every inch of this bracelet and care for it! An immaculate early Art Nouveau (Circa 1910) hand carved carnelian cameo with the depiction of a woman; Arethusa to be exact. Arethusa means "the waterer". In Greek mythology, she was a nymph and daughter of Nereus who fled from her home in Arcadia beneath the sea and came up as a fresh water fountain on the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, Sicily. The cameo itself measures approximately 20mm x 16mm and a thickness of 3.5mm. Surrounding this perfect portrait is a total of 40 glowing and fine quality rose cut diamonds have an accumulative diamond weight of approximately 1.20ctw with the quality grade of F-I in color, VS1-SI1 in clarity. Amazing sparkle they have! They are bead set and secure! Only the best and finest gems! In between the diamonds are four perfect cultured creamy white pearls that measure 4mm each. The bracelet is a hinged style, can fit up to a 7" inch wrist, and measures 35.5mm North to South, 65.61mm East to West, and is raised 11mm off the wrist when worn. The original safety chain is still soldered in place, and the bracelet weighs a total of 26 grams. The width of the bracelet part is a comfortable 10.5mm wide and is 2.5mm thick. A bracelet made in 15k yellow gold (stamped on the inside of the 'tongue') and tested throughout, UK origin, and you will NEVER see another one like it this beautiful! Questions are welcomed on this pristine piece of art (Bracelet-884b).
