Once in awhile I find something truly special and this is one of those pieces. This hinged bracelet is sterling, not marked but acid tested and guaranteed. The pastes have a diamond like appearance and are treated like diamonds in the way they are set. At the centre is a dreamy velvet blue paste claw set, and surrounded by 4mm claw set pastes. At the sides are stunning cushion cut high set pastes that are 7mm. To their sides are 7 graduating pastes that are pave set. They range in size from 2mm to 3mm. The bracelet itself is 3mm thick and 2 1/2 inches across. It fits an average wrist. All stones are open backed. The tongue clasp works great and there is a security chain. Condition is very good the only thing is that the blue paste has a small shallow chip on one of the top corners. This is hardly noticeable and it does not detract. C. 1880.
