Art Deco Silver Bohemian Garnet Bracelet Set
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'.
An incredible Bohemian garnet bangle set from the Art Deco (ca1930) era! This gorgeous set is comprised of two silver bracelets with matching garnet designs. The surface of each bracelet is encrusted with over 200 closed back garnets in a beautiful pave setting. The faceted garnets catch the light perfectly, displaying a deep, luscious red color. Both bracelets are hinged and clasp on the side with a safety chain for added security. The tongue of the clasp is also stamped "835S" and "835." The bracelets would look beautiful worn together as a set, and could be paired with other complimentary bangles if desired. They would make a stylish addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each bracelet has slightly different interior measurements, but both fit the same sized wrist. One of the bracelets measures 2 1/2" wide and 2 1/8" tall. The other measures 2 3/8" wide and 2 " tall. Both bracelets would fit nicely on a medium/average sized wrist.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet set is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting, and all of the garnet stones are intact. The clasps and safety chains are both secure and in good working condition.
