Victorian 14kt Mixed Metals Gemstone + Seed Pearl Multi-Charm Bracelet
An absolutely fantastic and unusual charm bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 14kt rose and yellow gold, this beautiful piece is a wonderful compilation of six gemstone accented charms which dangle from a unique and two-tone chain link bracelet. Each of the charms are 3-dimenional and represent a wonderful whimsical design, including an insect, a dragon, two birds, and two wishbones. The insect features outstretched seed pearl lined wings, curved legs, and a gorgeous prong set citrine stone representing the body. Next, is a "lucky" wishbone charm lined with delicate seed pearls, and stamped on the back is a "14K" purity mark besides a maker's mark. Near the center is a fantastic dragon covered in etched details with outstretched wings and a curved tongue and a beautiful opal held within its clawed foot. The following charm is of a lovely swallow who's body adorns a fine dotted texture with outstretched wings lined in delicate seed pearls. Resting near the tip of its head is a gorgeous faceted emerald, providing a wonderful pop of color. Next, is a smoothly polished rose gold wishbone adorned with a beautiful light blue sapphire at the center. Finally, a gorgeous rose and yellow gold peace dove dangles at the end, appearing as if it's holding a leafy branch, with a delicate seed pearl hanging below.
The stunning chain is comprised of an alternating pattern of padlock and moon and star links crafted in a feminine rose gold. Resting in between each links is a textured yellow gold bead embellished with delicate cutouts, creating a wonderful mixed metals design. The bracelet fastens with a secure push clasp, stamped with a "14K" gold purity mark, and a safety latch for extra security. Truly a one of a kind piece, this beautiful bracelet would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
