This is one-of-a-kind quality jewelry set crafted in 18K solid gold and dated to the 1870s.
The set consists of a solid gold bracelet and a solid gold brooch.
The bracelet is the opening bangle, cuff type with hidden hinges, featuring a medallion plate covered with pearls, diamonds and emeralds. The cultured pearls have very high luster and excellent nacre, and the gemstones are all earth mined. We have counted 16 pearls, 6 rose cut diamonds and 6 emeralds.
The medallion shape is repeated on the brooch which features a similar design, and the same number of pearls, diamonds and emeralds.
There are no pearls, no gemstones missing.
The bracelet closes with a hidden slide-in box closure on the tongue of which one can see many hallmarks.
The brooch closes with a slide-in push closure. Both closing mechanisms are safe and function perfectly
We have noticed no repairs nor soldering. The set is in excellent estate condition.
