Total WEIGHT including gemstones: 17.48 grams - INTERIOR: 2" x 1 3/4" x 1/8" - TOP: 1/2" tapering to 1/8" - PEARLS: 4mm each - Ten SAPPHIRES: 5mm ovals graduating to 3mm rounds - 33 ROSE DIAMONDS: 3mm graduating to 2 points - 3 Round cut Diamonds (center of the bangle) approx. 1/2 ct. TWT
Unmarked as 14 karat gold, but tested and guaranteed as described.
The sapphires are fully faceted Ceylon sapphires - medium to deep blue. The diamonds are all rose cut - a cut which is consistent with the Victorian/Edwardian age of the bangle.
No replaced stones.
The moderately squared off shape of the setting allows the bracelet to fit many size wrists without pinching. No damages to the gold except for a tiny dimple on the inside of the back. The dimple is a good reminder that the back of the bracelet is made of a thick, but hollow tube - subject to damage if not handled carefully. (Yet, one almost invisible dimple is a good track record for a bracelet that is over 100 years old.)
The design is classic Victorian - a span of full bezel set sapphires edged with prong set rose diamonds plus 3 round cut diamonds, anchored by a bow shape at either end.
Suitable for any occasion and almost any age group older than teens. Exceptional wedding jewelry.
Sapphire is the birthstone for September; Diamond is the birthstone for April.
