This is a wonderful Victorian foxtail chain bracelet this is, circa 1890's-1900. I wish we knew its history, who has loved it down through the decades, who has loved it for many years. This would make a wonderful gift for your special girl or a reward for yourself if you've had a long year! You will never see a bracelet like this at a mall jewelry store. No one spends the time creating by hand such beautiful works of art anymore like someone did over 100 years ago!
This is a mesh style bracelet made of three braided strands of foxtail chain. The bracelet is a hand fabricated braided bracelet with a tongue clasp. Notice the beautiful decorative work on the tongue clasp, with circles and dots of gold. There is a safety ring for extra security. The bracelet measures 3/8ths of an inch from top to bottom, is 6 1/2 inches long, & the clasp measures 5/8ths of an inch. The total piece weighs 15.3 grams. The bracelet is both stamped & tested 14K yellow gold, meaning it has 58.3% fineness of pure gold.
