This Krementz Art Nouveau bangle is beautiful and wonderful quality as expected from the company. It is very suitable for everyday wear as well as stacking with a few others. It's surface is a combination of two different textures. The leaf pattern and the rims are a medium toned high polish while the background to the leaves is a granulated texture. Both have a very subtle look giving the bangle a noticeable pattern while being attractive and tasteful. The entire bangle contains a running pattern of leaves accenting and alternating with 18 collar mounted amethyst gemstones.
The gold is in excellent condition with no cracks, rips, dents, holes, nasty scratches, ugly abrasions or repairs. The leaves are very well defined and show off with very good visibility due to the top of the bangle having a lightly curved surface. The bangle's oval shape is well rounded. The faceted amethysts appear to all be the originals. They measure approx. just over 3 mm inside their collars, are firmly in place and are well matched in color. They have been viewed with a 10 power loupe and no cracks were found. I did find that 5 of the 18 have chips but all are found on the surface of the stones. They are surprisingly hard to see without that trusty loupe.
There is the Krementz makers mark and the 14kt. gold purity mark on the interior of the bangle. The interior of the oval bracelet measures 7" and it's width is 5/16". This is a bangle so there is no closure/hinge. You must be able to slide the bangle on. Just take a few of your bangles and compare their interior measurements to these, 2 1/2" wide x 2 1/4" tall, to get a comfortable slide on fit.
