Retro Gold Filled Gemstone Hinged Bracelet
A beautiful and unusual gemstone bracelet from the early Retro (ca1930) era! This fabulous gold filled piece has a striking design which is encrusted with colorful hand-set crystals and real gemstones. The bracelet, which is particularly wide, is comprised of 5 tapered rectangular links which are hinged, forming a flexible but solid bracelet. The gold filled setting has a wonderful textured surface with a hand etched floral and leaf motif and the stones are set within a pinched bezel setting. The colorful combination of real and faux gemstones gives the piece a wonderful and vibrant look with gorgeous shades of yellow, green, blue, red, purple and pink. They vary in size and shape complete with round, heart-shaped, rectangular and oval and most have faceted faces. The clasp is incorporated into the design of the bracelet and the push clasp is represented by a single turquoise stone. The clasp and each link carries a hallmark however we are unsure of the maker of the piece. The bracelet has a fabulous and bold design and the piece would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
