Victorian Silver Mixed Metals Flexible Bracelet with Star Motif
A beautiful star motif silver bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This wonderful piece is crafted in .800 silver and displays a flattened gas pipe-style body that comes together to form a flexible bracelet that wraps comfortably around the wrist. The expandable links have a textured surface and a pattern of applied rose gold tone stars that carry around the entire length. Resting at the top and bottom between each star motif are two applied disks which also have a plated rose gold surface. Gold tone silver beads run along both sides of the bracelet, beautifully completing the subtle mixed metals celestial design. Finishing the look is a simple push clasp seamlessly hidden within the last link, and stamped on the tongue are several hallmarks and an ".800" silver purity mark. This Victorian era bracelet is gorgeous, and would look perfect worn alone or paired with other complimentary pieces!
Measurements: When fastened, the opening of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures about 2 1/8" in diameter, and the piece would fit best on a small sized wrist. The surface measures about 1/2" wide and is about 1/4" thick.
Condition: The bracelet is in good overall Antique condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver gas pipe band setting and the push clasp is secure and in good working condition. All of the stars, discs and balls are secure, however, the rose gold plated surface has faded over time giving it a natural patina which adds to the overall beauty of the bracelet.
