This Wonderful natural Lapis and Gold bracelet is so pretty. The lapis is beautifully matched and the links are large and thick. There is quite a bit of gold that connects these links. Also, at the clasp there is a solid gold Chinese locking safety chain.
There are 8 links that make up this bracelet. Each link is capped with gold. The pieces connecting the links are also made of gold. The bracelet movement is smooth and this is so well made.
The bracelet measures 7 1/8" long. Each link is hand sanded and domed. The finish of the lapis is shiny from the hand sanding process which likely took a very, very long time. The links each measure 3/4" long x 1/4" thick. The bench jeweler choose only the finest Lapis when he selected the pieces. The bracelet is stamped both 585 and 14K. This was likely made in China for export. The bracelet is Circa 1945 - 1950 and has a Very retro feel. It weighs an impressive 17.8 grams.
This is in Excellent Vintage condition with No damage or apologies to be made. It appears as if it was never worn. I believe the Chinese Character is either for luck, good fortune or love. Made in China, Circa 1945. Simply a beautiful piece of the highest quality. Questions are always welcome.
