Estate 18kt Love Knot Hinged Bangle Bracelet
A stunning Estate love knot bangle bracelet from 1970s era! Crafted in 18kt yellow gold, this gorgeous piece features a large love knot design at its center. The bangle is comprised of two gold tubes that wrap around the wrist and intertwine at the center, forming the romantic 3-dimensional love knot. A hidden push clasp and hinge is found on the sides of the smoothly polished bracelet, creating a wonderful seamless design. Stamped on the inside of the band are several marks, including "IDEA" along with a maker's mark with the number "60" and what is likely a patent stamp "1004 VI." A modern and romantic piece that can be worn alone or stacked with other bracelets, it would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: When closed, the inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/8" wide and 1 7/8" tall. The love knot itself measures about 1 1/4" wide and 3/4" tall and a little over a 1/4" thick. The band measures approximately 1/4" wide and is 1/8" thick. The bracelet would fit nicely on a medium/average sized wrist.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no damage to the gold and the clasp is secure and in good working condition.
