This dainty 14K Victorian Revival bracelet dates from the 1940's to early 1950's and is from an estate in Augusta, Maine. It is a bangle style and is set with turquoise and pearls which was very common in the Victorian era. It is marked 14K as shown in a photo of the inside near the hinge and is guaranteed to be such. There is lovely scroll work encircling both sides of the bangle which I have tried to show in the photos. The bangle is narrow measuring almost 1/4" at the top to the hinge and clasp sections and then gradually becoming narrower toward the bottom at 1/8". The bottom half of the bangle is reticulated on the sides. The turquoise and pearls are the same size, 3mm. The bangle opens with a push button and slides into the catch. Both the clasp and hinge are tight. The interior diameter measures 2" yet the bangle opens quite wide and weighs 11.3 grams on my jewelry scale. I have a large hand but a small/medium wrist, and the bangle fits me well and is easy to put on. It is in excellent condition. All that I can notice is perhaps a slight indentation at the bottom of the reticulated part of the bangle. Please note I am saying perhaps, as the bangle is made such that it gradually narrows there anyway. It does look lovely on the wrist, a Victorian look yet with a more modern safety clasp than one would find on a period piece. A lovely mid-century Victorian Revival bangle, it would make a nice addition to your vintage fine jewelry collection.
