Art Deco bracelet with coral, onyx, paste, and marcasites, in sterling silver, of fine quality. Designed with elaborate patterns of polished coral, onyx, brilliant clear pastes, and sparkling marcasites, this terrific bracelet is rich in texture and color. Quite breathtaking.
There are ten large, ornate links, five with a coral center and five with an onyx center; the coral stones are framed with dazzling clear pastes; and each link is heavily studded with bright, tiny marcasites. Beautifully constructed, the bracelet displays the great work of German jewelers during the 1920s and '30s.
The bracelet is long and wide, measuring 7-1/4" by 1-1/8". The condition is very good with the exception of the onyx stone nearest the clasp. It's dark gray rather than black and may be an old replacement. Otherwise, there are no scratches, chips, or missing stones. The secure clasp which is marked Sterling, Germany. The bracelet weighs 39.9g.
