This is a Victorian 14 karat yellow gold bangle bracelet. It has a lions head with a ruby eye. The ruby is bright and lively and there is a lovely patina over the piece that only time can produce. The hinge is in good working order, with plenty of spring left in it. The bracelet is easy to get on and fits a 6.5 inch wrist. You will not easily find another bracelet like this in such a great condition.
