Victorian Silver Gilt Bohemian Garnet Belly Front Bracelet

SKU: 22379

Bohemian garnet jewelry dates back to the 19th century. During this time, garnets were one of the most popular types of stones used in jewelry production. The garnets were often placed close together in an effort to produce a more pronounced color and brightness than when they were set singularly. Most often, bohemian garnet jewelry was set in a closed back setting made of rose gold gilt over silver; this method is sometimes referred to as 'garnet gold'.

A fabulous Bohemian garnet bangle from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This lovely piece is made of gilded sterling and is encrusted with hand faceted garnets. Four row of stones are prong set and line the entire outer surface of the piece. The bracelet has a belly front design and the garnets get slightly larger in the front. The bracelet is hinged and clasps on the side and has a safety chain for added security. All of the garnets are set in a closed back rose gold gilt setting and the garnets are in excellent condition, with a vibrant, luscious color. The bracelet look beautiful worn alone or with other bangles and would make a perfect addition to any collection!

Measurements: The bracelet graduates slightly in width, measuring 3/4" at the widest point and 1/2" at the thinnest. The inside opening (where your wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/4" wide and 2" tall.

Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gilted gold setting and all of the garnet stones are intact. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
