Lovely Carnelian Seven Days of the Week Shell Cameo Bracelet 800 Silver
The beloved Seven Days of the Week cameo bracelets can be found in all shapes and sizes, set in both silver and gold. Featuring seven panels that detail the god or goddess attributed to each specific day of the week, these bracelets are not only beautiful, but great conversation pieces. And they go with everything!
This lovely bracelet is crafted of 800 Silver and features seven cameos carved from richly hued carnelian shell (Cassis Rufa). Each of the rectangular cameos are set in raised bezels with a smooth surround that is accented with a 14K yellow gold twisted wire. Each of the panels measures 20mm wide (3/4") by 15.2mm tall (5/8") and are connected with double connector links. The bracelet is fitted with a hidden tongue and groove closure that is mounted to and hidden behind the first and last cameo links. The clasp tongue is hallmarked "800" for 800 silver.
The bracelet measures 7 inches long when clasped and weighs a substantial 20.7 grams.
We estimate the age of this bracelet to be approximately 1900-1920. This bracelet features the distinctive impressionist "seven days" carvings that incorporated limited strokes to evoke a sense of motion when viewed with the naked eye. All seven carvings are extremely crisp with all of their original details which represent the following 7 gods.
1. Monday - Artemis (Diana), Goddess of the Hunt (Chase), chariot pulled by slaves.
2. Tuesday - Ares (Mars), God of War, chariot pulled by stallions.
3. Wednesday - Hermes (Mercury), God of commerce, Messenger for the Gods, chariot pulled by goats.
4. Thursday - Zeus (Jupiter), King and Father of Gods, chariot pulled by swans.
5. Friday - Aphrodite (Venus), Goddess of Beauty and Love, chariot pulled by doves.
6. Saturday - Cronus (Saturn), Eldest of the Gods, God of Agriculture, chariot pulled by snakes.
7. Sunday - Apollo, God of Sun, Art, Music and Medicine, chariot pulled by horses.
The bracelet is in excellent condition and ready to wear without worry. The cameos are supple and without cracks or chips.
