Retro 14kt Platinum Ruby + Diamond Buckle Link Bracelet
A striking bracelet from the Retro (ca1940s) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold and platinum, this bracelet displays a lovely buckle-like motif. Yellow gold buckle-shaped links connect to platinum links to create a straight but flexible design. Platinum links are encrusted with gems, four displaying Round Cut diamonds in each and four boasting sets of three natural, French Cut rubies. The diamonds sparkle beautifully in then the light, and the rubies exhibit a wonderfully lush, red hue. The clasp is hidden within one of the ruby links, marked "10% IRID PLAT 14K" and a maker's mark, an "H" within a diamond. Two figure-8 clasps further secure the bracelet. This spectacular piece is perfect for the modern-day woman!
Condition: The bracelet is in excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and platinum setting. All of the diamonds are intact and securely set. There is some very minor wear to the rubies, as expected of a piece this age, but this does not negatively impact the beauty or integrity of the piece. The latching clasp and the figure-8 latches are all secure and in good working condition.
