This bracelet is Georgian, circa 1810. It has a central panel set with multi-colored diamond glass stones. The metal is detailed and their are 6 enamel flowers as accents. The band is finely pierced , almost like lace. The patina is superb and all original.

The central section, which also serves as a clasp, is lovely and is complemented by the simplicity of the band. In England these are often referred to as "Pinch" after the famous Pinchbeck (copies of gold) in the 18th century. Christopher Pinchbeck is said to have invented a formula simulating the beauty of a rich gold. Pieces that can be attributed to him are very rare and valuable. The term now is used loosely now to describe early jewelry with a beautiful finish that isn't gold.

It measures 7 inches long and terminates with a secure push clasp. The central panel measures 2 1/4 inches long X 1 1/4 inches across. Condition is excellent. Minor loss of enamel to a few metals of the flowers seen with close scrutiny. Years ago, these bracelets were readily available and now, like all the other beautiful Georgian pieces of jewelry, they have become scarce. England, circa 1810.
