Estate Italian Huge 18kt Gold Reversible Bamboo Link Bracelet 107.2G
This vintage 18kt gold bracelet from the 1960s makes a very big statement! The stylish Italian-made piece is made of oversized "bamboo" links and has a very substantial look and feel. Each open link has a smooth surface on one side and a brushed gold surface on the other, giving the bracelet a reversible design. Chunky bar hinges connect each link together, making the bracelet flexible and comfortable to wear. Grooved accents on the surface of each link provide extra depth and texture. The piece fastens with a bamboo-shaped toggle clasp that fits through the final open ring. A safety clasp at the end can be opened and hooked onto the chain for extra security when worn. Stamped on the toggle clasp is "212 AL" (denoting the Italian province of Alessandria) and "750." The safety clasp is also stamped "1/25 12KT". This bold and fashionable piece is very eye-catching and would compliment any ensemble. Perfect for the fashion-forward woman, it would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measures approximately 7 1/2" long (excluding the safety chain and toggle) and would fit nicely on an average sized wrist. Each large bamboo link has a 1 1/2" diameter and measures 3/8" at the thickest point. The overall weight of the piece is 107.2 grams.
Condition: The bracelet is excellent vintage condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to any of the gold bamboo links. The toggle clasp and safety catch are both secure and in good working condition.
