This lapis and gold articulated bracelet features gorgeous colors and a Chinese flare. The bracelet measures 7” long, and is made of 8 domed lapis links each capped with 3mm of gold on each side. The pieces connecting the links are also made of gold. These gold movements between links are very smooth. The lapis is beautifully matched and the links are large and thick. The bracelet weighs an impressive 21.7 grams. The solid gold clasp decorated with Chinese letters works very well, and is secured by a small safety loop also made of gold. I believe the Chinese Character is either for luck, good fortune or love. It is marked on the back of the clasp “14K/585.” The bracelet was probably made in China for export in the late 1940s or early 1950s. It has a vintage feel with contemporary beauty because of the lapis and gold. The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition with no damage, tarnish, or discoloration even though I have not cleaned this piece at all. Please view all photos prior to purchasing. We have quite a few lapis and gold pieces listed, so please check out our other items.
