Art Deco Sterling Silver Moonstone Hinged Bangle Bracelet
A lovely moonstone bracelet from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! Crafted in sterling silver, this beautiful piece features 74 moonstone cabochons which are aligned in a double row fashion extending the length of the piece. Each cabochon is set within a five-pronged, open-back setting, held within the open-channel sterling frame. The moonstones display subtle flashes of blue and white luminescence as they catch the light, emitting a gentle glow which looks beautiful when worn. A discrete push clasp fastens the hinged bracelet at the side, and is further secured by a safety chain. This bangle would look wonderful on its own or complemented by additional silver pieces and the piece would make a lovely addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The inside of the bracelet, where a wrist would rest, measures just under 2" tall and 2 5/16" wide. The width of the surface of the bracelet measures approximately 1/2" wide. The moonstone cabochons are of varying sizes, averaging approximately 1/4" in diameter.
Condition: The bracelet is in overall good antique condition. The silver setting displays signs of wear, commensurate with age. Additionally, some of the moonstones display chips and scratches, but they are in overall good condition. The moonstones are secured to the bracelet by both prongs and glue, some of which is visible when the bracelet is examined. The hinge, push clasp, and safety chain are all secure and in good working condition.
