GUCCI Estate 18kt Large Horse Bit + Anchor Link Bracelet 52.2dwt
A fabulous Estate bracelet from legendary designer Gucci! This stylish 18kt yellow gold piece is comprised of a particularly large horse bit link connected to five strands of anchor links (also known as "mariner links"). This common Victorian link dates back to the 1800s, and is what the modern "Gucci link" was replicated from. The large horse bit is hinged in two places, creating a flexible design that comfortably wraps around the wrist and connects to the strands of chain. The anchor links graduate in size, and connect to a lobster clasp in the back, securely fastening the bracelet together. Gracing the front of the horse bit link is the signature "GUCCI" hallmark, along with various hallmarks on the back, including "GUCCI," "made in italy," "17," (indicating the bracelet size), and an "AU 750" gold purity mark. The attractive design is a bold and classic Gucci statement piece, and looks equally stylish whether worn alone or stacked with other complimentary bracelets!
Measurements: The bracelet measures 7.75" long, and is approximately 1 5/8" wide and 5/8" thick. It would fit nicely on a medium to large sized wrist. The horse bit link measures about 2 3/4" long, 1 1/4" wide, and 1/2" thick. The bracelet has a pennyweight of 52.2 dwt (81.1 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The hinges and clasp are secure and in good working order.
