This carnelian bracelet is a wonderful and hard to find variation of the filigree bracelets from the 20's. Your main focal points are three cut corner rectangular mountings with a form of a beaded and mil-grained rim. They hold high polished flat cabochons of a very deep and rich brick color. Placed in their centers are diamond shaped mounts containing tiny diamonds for a bit of sparkle accent. The alternating links are a somewhat oval shaped open work filigree with again mil-grained rims thru out the pattern.
The carnelian cabochons are in excellent condition with no cracks, holes, chips, deep scratches or nasty abrasions. The cabochons and their center accents are all firmly seated in place. The gold is also excellent with no rips, dents, holes, or repairs noted. The openwork was inspected with a 10 power loupe and there are no missing pieces to the pattern. I did find that all five cast links have the same identical minute makers flaw that is only found with a loupe. If you look at photo # 3 you can see a red arrow. That tiny bar is not connected to its opposing piece. It is so minor but we are reporting it to be accurate. The clasp is original and true to the period. It has a push spring movement that is in smooth working order and the bracelet stays closed.
The 14k mark is on the clasp as seen in the photos. The bracelet measures 7" long x 1/2" wide at the carnelian mounts. A lovely filigree bracelet from the 20's that will look great at work or play.
