It doesn't get more Australian than this! A wonderful piece of Australian history is this 9ct gold 'map of Australia' bracelet, dating to the early Edwardian era, c1901! Patriotic jewellery was made to commemorate the Federation of Australia formed on 1st January 1901, also known as the Commonwealth of Australia. Many stick pins, brooches and pendants were made to commemorate this event, albeit not so many bracelets were made - this is the first one I've seen.

The bracelet is made up of 7 'map of Australia' links each detailed with a hand engraving of 'Australia', lines dividing the states and foliage near the edges. Each is bordered with an oval rim accented with a milgrain edge. There is a 'criss-cross' jump ring linkage interspaced. A secure box-style tongue clasp connects at the end which secures into place with a click, and a safety chain is attached for extra security. Each link and clasp back bears the old "9cT" stamp. The width of the bracelet link measures 14.50mm (average) and total length measures 20cm.

A wonderful piece of Australian history, perhaps to add to a collection or as a gift to the avid Australia lover!
