This lovely Victorian Bohemian garnet bangle bracelet features a wonderful ornate design. All antique garnets are intact and are a beautiful dark red color. The bracelet is gilded and there is a very minor ding or dent to the inside of the bracelet , which does not show through on the back and is not visible when worn. The clasp works well and there is a safety chain. The hinged bracelet is set in "garnet gold" and unmarked. Some of these were 800 silver with gilded overlay, some were brass, some a low karat gold. The bracelet is 3/4" wide at the front . Around the sides --1/4" wide. 8" around on the OUTSIDE when shut. When closed, the INSIDE measurement is 6~1/4" and it has a a gap of 2 1/4" when opened. This is a beautiful bracelet in lovely, antique condition and impressive when worn. With a jeweler's loupe I was able to find one stone with a tiny chip. Some stones show wear, light scratches and minor flaws commensurate with the age and use of the bracelet. These flaws are not visible with the naked eye and do not distract from the beauty of the bracelet.
