Fabulous Egyptian Revival alexandrite panel bracelet and matching necklace. This suite was made circa 1920 in the Art Deco period. Three round beautifully faceted synthetic alexandrite stones dance from brilliant purple to aqua/deep blue depending on the light source. Synthetic Alexandrite stones like these are well known for their color-changing properties, from warm shades of purple /magenta in incandescent lighting, to cool blue tones in bright or florescent light. Three stones total, in each piece, and each stone is approximately 8 carats/13mm. Each panel depicts an Egyptian pharaoh or goddess and then we have lovely lotus flowers capping each end. Very well hallmarked on the back of the clasp 9c and on each segment. Materials; 9K Rose Gold & Synthetic Alexandrite Size; Bracelet, 7" Long , ......Bracelet Stones Measure 14mm,...... 22.1 Grams In Weight Necklace; 19" around........21.1 Grams In Weight Total Weight The Set 43.2 Grams Condition is amazing, I can find no flaws except the spring ring on the necklace was replaced at some point. History: Earlier Egyptian Revival Periods like the one in the mid 19th century, focused mainly on the use of Egyptian design motifs in architecture. The Revival that occurred in the 1920's with the discovery of King Tut's Tomb in 1922, was all about grandeur and opulence in the form of exquisite gold jewelry! The Twenties saw the height of the Period's popularity, but Egyptian motifs carried on into the Art Deco Period and beyond, well into the 1950's .
I did considerable research on this set and found the bracelet alone, without the matching necklace, being offered for $1800. Although I agree it is a rare and wonderful piece I have priced my set much lower because I want it to be more affordable. Many payment options are available, please inquire, including layaway.
