Marking the Art Deco period, this sugarloaf carnelian and chrysoprase link bracelet is both typical and unusual. It is typical in the use of the wonderful high sugarloaf cuts and the pairing of carnelian and chrysoprase. But it is unusual in that both yellow and white gold were used to decorate and connect the stones.
The rich combination of carnelian and chrysoprase are like a match made in heaven; they just want to be together in a myriad of Art Deco jewelry pieces. These link bracelets are enjoying a renaissance in popularity as they are newly discovered as particular jewelry treasures from the past.
Two carnelian and two chrysoprase gems are alternately linked with 14k white gold navette shaped links which are then linked to the stone with 14k yellow gold paper clip links.
From the back, it is particularly easy to see how beautifully made this bracelet is, with each stone revealing a decorated backing which wraps up to hold the stone in a four double-prong position.
Measuring 7 1/2" in length, it has nice heft and weighs 18.1 grams.
