Pave set with delicious rose-cut garnets all the way around, this is a yummy bracelet with rich deep red garnets and a period sentiment that makes it especially appealing.
All the original stones are expertly set so that little or no metal is showing, giving it an overall appearance of pomegranate-red colored stones enhancing a bangle and encircling a wrist.
Four (4) rows of rose-cut garnets create an 11.5mm wide bracelet. While difficult to measure because of the setting, each garnet measures *approximately 3mm. The garnets are set in the metal of the period, which was neither gold nor silver but a base metal.
The interior measurements are *approximately 6 1/4”; as an oval shape, it is an especially comfortable fit.
Difficult to find with all the original stones in such fine condition, this is a great piece of period garnet jewelry which is wearable, beautiful and always interesting. When under daylight or incandescent light, the unbelievably rich red is lit up like a red jewel and it is easy to see why Victorian garnets have been so coveted.
