Vintage 14kt Inlaid Malachite & Lapis Bangle Bracelet
A fantastic vintage malachite and lapis bracelet from the 1970's! This wide, 3 dimensional bangle has a wonderful, bold look and is made of 14kt yellow gold. Inlaid in the front of the piece are 12 horizontal lapis stones and 3 vertically resting malachite stones. The malachite and lapis have fabulous and vibrant color which compliment the gold band wonderfully. The gold bracelet is hinged and clasps on the side. It graduates in width and is the widest at the front. There is a safety clasp as well as a safety chain on the side and the inside is stamped "585 14K". This bracelet would rest nicely on an average size wrist and makes a bold statement when worn!
Measurement: The width of the bracelet graduates in size measuring 1" at the widest and 3/8" at the thinnest and graduates in depth ranging from 1/4" to 1/2". The inside opening (where your wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/4" wide and 1 3/4" tall.
Condition: The overall condition of this bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or to any of the stones which are intact. The clasp is snug and secure and the hinge in good working condition.
