At first glance you would think by its construction, this Vintage Sterling Bangle Bracelet dates to the late 19th Century. Well crafted Victorian style bracelet is hinged and because it is oval, it does not roll back & forth on your wrist. The exterior is flat and the Front has beautiful hand engraving.... a flower with leafy flourishes. The Reverse is plain - could be personalized with a special date, name, initials or poetic phrase. The interior is curved for comfort & it is Clearly Marked "STERLING" and a partial Jewelry Manufacturing company hallmark inside of a circle (see photo). I was surprised that it was not made in England. It also has a fully functional "notched" push-in clasp that 'snaps' loudly when closed as well as a safety chain!
I truly am not sure of its exact age... possibly 1940-1950? Antique style bangle WEIGHS Over 19 Grams (~ 2/3 Troy Oz), MEASURES 1/2 Inch N-S and 2 1/2 Inches across the widest part of its interior. My Wrist is ~ 6 1/4 Inches and I can slip the bangle on & off without opening it. With the safety Chain... the opening of the bangle expands another 2 1/2 Inches.
Overall CONDITION is VERY GOOD! I would Rate it a 9 on a scale of 10. There are NO DINGS, DENTS, BREAKS, CRACKS, REPAIRS or Excessive Wear to the front, back and interior... under very close inspection there are a couple minor teeny, tiny, shallow dents near the hinge on the back side btm. edge of the bangle. GREAT Looking Sterling accessory has not been professionally buffed/polished and displays some old patina that highlights its hand engraving. I PROMISE you will not be disappointed!
