SKU: 21289

$1,495
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'.

A fabulous Bohemian garnet bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This gorgeous bangle is made of silver, and is encrusted with over 600 faceted garnets, which cover the entire surface. Each side of the bracelet displays 8 rows of stones, which rest in a pavé setting. All of the stones display a deep, luscious red color and catch the light beautifully! The bracelet is hinged and fastens with a secure pin clasp on the side, where a safety chain provides added security. A perfect everyday accessory, this gorgeous bangle would look equally lovely worn alone, or paired with other complimentary bracelets!

Measurements: The inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures 2 1/2" wide and 2 1/4" tall. It would fit nicely on a medium to large sized wrist. The surface of the bracelet measures 3/4" wide.

Condition: The bracelet is in very good antique condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting or garnet stones, which are intact and securely set. The pin clasp and safety chain are both secure and in good working condition. There is a natural patina on the surface of the setting, which is a normal characteristic of antique jewelry.
