Art Nouveau 14kt Sapphire Engine-Turned Bangle Bracelet
A simply beautiful bangle bracelet from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) period! This lovely piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and has a wonderful engine-turned design that covers the entire outer surface. Set across the front are three deep blue sapphire stones, which are held within square-shaped bezels. Running along the top and bottom edges is a row of delicate rectangular cutouts, creating a a lovely airline. Engraved on one side of the bracelet is the inscription "E.H.P. Aug. 7 1916" and stamped inside the rim is "14K". The bangle slips on and off without a clasp and would fit nicely on an average sized wrist. A perfect everyday piece for stacking or wearing alone, it would compliment any collection!
Measurements: The inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/2" wide and approximately 2 1/4" tall. The surface is approximately 3/16" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage or dings to the gold, and all three sapphires are intact.
