Can a brutalist bracelet manage to both live up to its name and be delicate? In the case of this 9 karat gold bracelet, hallmarked 1970, the answer is yes. The background of each link has the rough, bark-like, texture for which brutalist jewelry is known; however each link also has a thin, polished, line through the center (or in the case of the edge links, along the edges) that reflect light and lighten its appearance. With its classic brickwork links, and unusual texture, this bracelet would make a great addition to a wrist stack, but has the presence to stand on its own.

The bracelet has a very interesting clasp mechanism, wherein a disk fits into hole and is locked by a sliding mechanism that firmly secures it in place. For someone new to this bracelet, it can take a little time to get used to using the lock.

SIZE: 7-1/8" long x 5/8" wide. Bracelet could be shortened by a jeweler in 1/2" increments.

WEIGHT: 29.4 grams

MARKS: the bracelet has British hallmarks. "9" and "375" indicating that it's made of 9 karat (or carat, the British spelling) gold; and anchor, indicating that is was assayed in the Birmingham assay office; and a lower case "v", the date mark for 1970. There are also the initials "J.R" stamped on the back, probably the maker's mark; and "J4-19" scratched into the back, either a manufacturing note or a jeweler's note.

AGE: 1970

CONDITION: excellent vintage condition with minor signs of wear.
