Sterling Filigree Faux Amethyst and Faux Diamond Straight Line Bracelet - Circa 1925
This 20's filigree bracelet is lovely quality and so looks like it's white gold and real gemstone cousins, but it is not. Those wonderful filigree links almost entirely contain all mil-grained rims. The only exceptions are the four petal flower in their center and the eight tiny leaves, 4 on each side, of the link. Even the side rims have pattern work like the higher quality gold bracelets. The faux faceted gems are paste and are all mounted in collars again with mil-grained rims. Just beautiful design and high quality.
The sterling is in excellent condition with no rips, dents, holes, cracks, nasty scratches/abrasions or repairs noted. The sterling is rhodium plated and will never have to be polished, just cleaned in soapy water when dirty. The openwork was inspected with a 10 power loupe and there are no missing pieces to the patterns. Each link is attached to it's neighbor by a hinge. All of the hinges appear to be original and are in working order with some being a bit more stiff then others. The clasp closes with a soft click and stays firmly closed when the bracelet is shaken. It has the standard underside full security catch as usually seen on the higher quality bracelets.
The paste stones are in excellent minus condition with no cracks, holes, deep scratches or nasty abrasions. One amethyst (the one closest to the clasp box) has a surface chip. Please see the over exposed insert, left corner of the last photo. As this shape of stone has multiple facets you don't see the chip unless you use a loupe. The stones are all firmly seated in their collars.
The sterling and makers mark is on the security catch below the clasp box as seen in the photos. The bracelet measures 7 1/4" long (not counting the closure flange) x a hair under 7/16" wide. A lovely, vintage, high quality filigree bracelet from the 20's that is suitable for work or play.
