Victorian Sapphire and Diamond Braided Bracelet 15k c. 1870
What a gorgeous, wearable bracelet that is soooo golden in color--beautiful! This is a Victorian natural sapphire and diamond bracelet in 15k yellow gold circa 1870. The body of the bracelet is done in braided twists of gold, which give the piece a sort Celtic, ancient feel and the workmanship is quite incredible. There are two rose cut diamonds and one Old Mine cut diamond weighing approximately .08ctw. There are also four round cut sapphires, beautifully matched in color and very vibrant!
This bracelet measures 1/4" around except at the central element with the stones, which measures 1/2" in width. The inside measurements are 2 1/8" x 2" and 6" around, so this piece fits a small wrist. The piece is stamped 15CT and has been tested for gold content. The bracelet weighs 9 grams. There is patina to several areas. We do not recommend wearing this bracelet in a stack and instead suggest that it should be worn on its own due to age.
