From an estate, this is a stunning Art Nouveau filigree bracelet made out of 18K solid gold and enhanced with diamonds. This rare bracelet was crafted in France, in one of the French provinces.
It is composed of nine individual links, each of them shaped as a lozenge and covered with a rose-cut diamond measuring 1.5mm. The diamonds are solidly prong set on a beautifully contrasting white gold base and elevated from it by another lozenge shape which frames the diamond. The craftsmanship of this bracelet is at once complex and very subtle. The pointed end of each lozenge link turns it into a very elegant geometrical motif, and seems to usher in the following art Déco period.
The closure is tongue and grove and hidden under one of those links. It shows numerous stamps which indicate the quality (18K solid gold) and the origin (provincial France) of this gorgeous bracelet. An additional security chain has been added to this 18K solid gold, intense hue, beautiful piece of fine jewelry
