Art Nouveau 18kt Repousse & Sapphire Hinged Bangle Bracelet
An absolutely gorgeous bangle bracelet from the Art Nouveau (ca1910) period! This stunning piece is made of vibrant 148t yellow gold and has a gorgeous repousse design that carries around the entire outer surface of the bracelet, adding texture and depth. On outside of the bangle are 6 sapphire cabochons, which are bezel set. The stones have a wonderful, deep blue color which looks fantastic against the yellow gold setting. The bracelet is hinged and opens at at push clasp at the side, which is stamped "18K" along with a small maker's mark on the tongue of the clasp. An infinity safety clasp snaps into place for extra security. The bangle would fit nicely on an average sized wrist and would look fabulous worn alone or stacked with a group of other similar bracelets!
Measurements: The inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures 2 1/2" wide and 2 1/4" tall. The surface of the bracelet is 1/4" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, and all of the sapphires are intact.
