An elegant antique bangle from the late Victorian, early Edwardian era, circa 1900's! The design boasts a beautiful white shell cameo carved with the profile of a woman's head draped with a Victorian curled hairstyle and flowing neckline. The cameo is secured into a bezel and held into place with four double claws. The classic antique bangle design features a curved three rail shoulder which is accented with one natural seed pearl along the central rail. Adding extra style is the lovely wedge-shaped profiles the little pearls are placed into. A smooth, flat profile tube measuring 5mm wide makes up the rest of bangle which is hinged with a tongue clasp, along with a safety chain for extra security.
Bangle is hand made in 9k rose gold, the colour is the beautiful warm, yet subtle rose hue often seen in antique pieces. Some hallmarks are evident inside bangle, difficult to decipher, but looks consistent with the early Australian hallmarks; '9' in the centre, with a flag (makers mark of Aronson & Co) and possibly a 'sheaf' -the early 9ct gold standard mark.
A gorgeous feminine design which would look gorgeous mixed with today's fashion, as it did 100 or so years ago!
ERA: late Victorian, early Edwardian, circa 1900.
MATERIAL: 9k Rose Gold
GEMSTONES: Shell cameo and two seed pearls- likely natural
HALLMARK: difficult to decipher, however consistent with early Australian- '9' in the centre, with a flag (makers mark of Aronson & Co) and possibly a 'sheaf' -the early 9ct gold standard mark.
WEIGHT: 10.17 grams
SIZE -6 1/4" inner circumference and 54mm (just over 2" inches) inner diameter
CONDITION: Very good antique condition! Consistent with age there are some dents on the back inside section of bangle and two very minor dings to back half of bangle. Also a very small led solder repair to inner central rail - where cameo bezel setting meets centre rail. Both flaws cannot be seen whilst wearing, and the small repair does not affect the integrity of bangle. The clasp works well, with a firm click to close. A beautiful and unique antique bracelet!
