This is amazing bracelet considering its age and condition. It is crafted from 14K rose gold with natural coral. This bracelet is of Imperial Russian Origin and dates from the late 1700's. It possesses a couple of hallmarks as follows: 56 for the gold standard of 14K. A date code of PJ in a square which was i believe used in the later part of the 1700's. The imperial double headed Eagle Hallmark which indicates it is from Moscow. This is a rather large bracelet which I believe is best suited on the upper portion of the forearm. It features lovely hinged panels that allow to hug the arm perfectly. The center is a cameo of a lady which is to be facing the wearer. The dangles of coral and gold beads are to be worn down towards the wrist. This bracelet is in amazing condition with a bit of wear but fabulous condition for its age. This pieces was surely prized and taken very good care of. The clasp is a simple push tongue and grove with a safety chain for added security. I think this is an amazing piece of history as well as art. It is expertly crafted with extreme attention to detail. This is a completely ORIGINAL bracelet with no repairs know to exist, but always zoom in to the photographs for your confirmation. One can only imagine the myriad of people who dressed themselves with this jewel.
