14Kt. Gold and Amethyst Art Nouveau Bracelet - Circa 191014Kt. Gold and Amethyst Art Nouveau Bracelet - Circa 191014Kt. Gold and Amethyst Art Nouveau Bracelet - Circa 191014Kt.

This lovely and tasteful Art Nouveau bracelet is very suitable for everyday wear as well as stacking with a few others. It's surface has a very subtle polished look due to a light surface bath done to create a faint mat/satin finish. The front of the bracelet contains the pattern of four curlicues accenting three collar mounted amethyst gemstones. The back of the bracelet is unpatterned.

The gold is in excellent condition with no cracks, rips, dents, holes, nasty scratches, ugly abrasions or repairs. The hinge is the original and the clasp closes with a loud click and stays firmly closed. It's oval shape is well rounded. The backside of the bracelet has a couple spots of uneven surface as is very normal. The most noticeable on inspection is a very very shallow dimple that is approx. 1/32" wide (see black ^ on photo # 4) The tongue fitting into it's closure hole is a bit misaligned as is often found due to age of the bracelet. I always report these age/wear minor flaws to be accurate. The curlicues are all there with no missing pieces and are well defined being a 1/32" above the bracelet's surface. The faceted amethysts appear to be the originals. They measure approx. 3.5 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 or chips were found. I did see a minute flea bite that was so small I can only estimate it at 1/64".

There is a makers mark on the closure tongue that appears to be for Goldsmith Stern & Co. of NY City. There was no gold purity mark so Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 14kt. The interior of the oval bracelet measures 7" and it's width is 1/4" I have a 6 3/4" wrist and the bracelet is very comfortable on me.
