Stunning ART DECO 14K Gold, 2.35CT TW Diamond & Ruby Hinged Bangle Bracelet
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! Up for offer now….
AGE: C.1930 or so
ITEM: Probably the most beautiful hinged bangle bracelet I have ever found! Hinged and fashioned of yellow gold, the top design features faceted diamonds and rubies (possibly synthetic and ENTIRELY period appropriate) in a graduated design. While the front portion of the bracelet is a solid sheet of gold, the back of the bangle has a lot of openwork so that the wrist can breathe while wearing. With a tongue-in clasp, there is also a bit of safety chain for added security.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot to the gold. One ruby has a small mark on the top with a light scratch to one side - visible ONLY with a 10X loupe - the stone is eye clean to the naked eye. Hinge is perfect, closure holds tightly and opens easily.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot on the bracelet; the clasp to the safety chain is hallmarked 14K. Metal to the bracelet was gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: Fits my size 7 wrist perfectly - could go a little larger, could go a little smaller. Width of the front of the bracelet is 3/8" (10mm) at the center diamond.
GEMSTONES: Diamonds number 5 while the rubies number4. The stones are older cuts and are set within a bezel backing with prongs (at the front) holding the stones securely.
Diamonds measure: 2 at 2.5mm (5 points), 2 at 4mm (25 points) and 1 center at 5.5mm (65 points). Total carat weight of the diamonds is 1.25CT TW approx (stones were measured in their settings so weights are approx.) Color of the diamonds is F-G and clarity is SI 1-2. I have never seen whiter stones in a bracelet!
Rubies measure: 2 at 4mm (25 points) and 2 at 4.2mm (30 points) for a total carat weight of 1.10CT TW. The rubies are clear, a deep red and are just breathtaking!
Total gemstone weight to the bracelet is 2.35CT TW.
WEIGHT: 18.5 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: This is the ONE!
