Retro 18kt Rose Gold Diamond + Emerald Buckle Bracelet 64.9dwt
A fabulous gemstone buckle bracelet from the Retro (ca1940) era! Crafted in 14kt rose gold, this wide, heavy mesh bracelet wraps around the wrist, fastening with a stunning 3-dimensional "buckle" at the center. The fabulous and bold buckle is a large, octagonal shaped link with an open center, smoothly polished finish and faceted edges. The "straps" on either side adorn an emerald center flanked by two sparkling diamonds, all set within a feminine milgrain box setting. One of the straps also acts as the clasp, where it pulls open (revealing a "750" gold purity mark beside a maker's mark) and slips under the buckle to be fastened securely into place on the band. Finishing the design is the fabulous mesh band, which is comprised of smoothly polished delicate links, which together create a thick, flexible basketweave pattern that wraps comfortably around the wrist. The combination of the rose gold next to the diamonds and emeralds makes for a fabulous statement piece. An incredible bracelet with a strong Retro look, it would make a spectacular addition to any collection!
Measurement: The bracelet measures approximately 6.5" long, and the buckle measures about 1 1/2" wide and 1/2" thick. The band measures about 1 1/4" wide and is about 1/18" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 64.9dwt (100.9 grams). The bracelet would fit nicely on a small sized wrist.
