Retro 14kt Ruby + Diamond Adjustable Buckle Bracelet
A fabulous gemstone buckle bracelet from the late Retro (ca1950s) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, this wide bracelet wraps around the wrist, fastening with a stunning 3-dimensional "buckle" at the center. The band is comprised of smoothly polished delicate links that connect together to form a flexible mesh "strap" that wraps comfortably around the wrist. The chevron-shaped end of the strap as well as the center of the buckle are lined with vibrant calibrated rubies while the loop and the remaining part of the buckle are adorned with sparkling diamonds. The pointed tongue of the adjustable bracelet slides within the loop of the buckle, where 5 hidden notches on the underside allow the single gold tooth to be secured. The gorgeous buckle acts as a safety clasp, and is pushed down over the strap to securely fasten it into place. The combination of the smoothly polished yellow gold links next to the diamonds and rubies makes for a fabulous statement piece when worn. An incredible piece with a strong Retro look, it would make a spectacular addition to any collection!
