Art Deco Sterling & Rock Quartz Crystal "Pools of Light" Bracelet
An unusual rock quartz crystal bracelet from the Art Deco (1930s) era! This wonderful link bracelet is comprised of 9 graduating cabochons made of rock quartz crystal, which are traditionally known as "Pools of Light." The polished cabochons form smooth half-spheres, each contained within an open sterling bezel. Small sections of chain connect each link together, forming a straight but flexible bracelet that wraps comfortably around the wrist. The piece fastens with a filigree push clasp at the end made of sterling silver. "Pools of Light" have quite an alluring appearance when worn, and this bracelet is a particularly stunning example. It would make a gorgeous addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measures 6 3/4" long and would fit nicely on an average to medium sized wrist. The largest center link has a 5/8" diameter and measures 3/8" thick. The smallest links at the ends have a 1/2" in diameter and are approximately 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. All of the polished rock quartz crystal links are intact and free of chips or scratches. The push clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition. There is a natural patina that gives a darkened antique appearance to the surface of the sterling, which is normal for antique jewelry, and adds to its unique character.
