Art Deco Platinum 11ctw Blue Zircon + 1.50ctw Diamond Link Bracelet
A breathtaking zircon and diamond line bracelet from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This spectacular piece is crafted in platinum and features an intricate filigree pattern encrusted with blue zircons and sparkling diamonds. Each of the 12 rectangular shaped links are adorned with a stunning natural blue zircon, which collectively, have an overall total weight of approximately 11.00ctw. The large stones rest in a hexagonal shaped open back boxed setting, each one exhibiting a vivid turquoise sky blue hue as the light passes through the facets. The gemstones are surrounding throughout by old Mine Cut diamonds, a perfect compliment to the colorful zircons. Geometric cutouts embellish the sides of each link, where a diamond encrusted loop connects the bracelet together, forming a straight but flexible design that wraps comfortably around the wrist. The diamonds have a total approximate weight of 1.50ctw, creating a sparkling array with every turn. Finishing the look are delicate cutouts that embellish the sides of each link and fine milgrain work throughout the piece, both adding a wonderful feminine touch. The bracelet fastens together with a push clasp, safety latch (stamped with a "IRID PLAT" purity mark beside an anchor maker's mark) and a safety chain for extra security. A magnificent and classic Art Deco piece, it would look outstanding worn on special occasions!
