A stunning, one-of-a-kind charm bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! Crafted in 18kt yellow gold and topped in sterling silver, the bracelet is comprised of nine golden balls between nine sections comprised of glittering Rose Cut diamonds. The golden spheres have Etruscan detailing, and the Rose Cut diamonds are bezel set and linked together in a straight-yet-flexible setting. Five charms hang from the bracelet: a cluster, a flower, a rooster, a hummingbird, and a vase. The central diamond of the cluster has a beautiful fancy champagne color that perfectly complements the patinaed setting. The central Old Mine Cushion Cut diamond within the flower is prong-set, raised above the former stick pin's Rose Cut encrusted petals. The rooster has delicate milgrain, enhanced by red enamel on its comb and wattle. The hummingbird has a golden beak and its diamonds glisten as it spreads its wings. The vase has a beautiful curling handle and the diamonds rest in an open-backed, prong-secured frame, allowing the diamond charm to appear nearly colorless as the light passes through. A spring ring secures the bracelet to an illegibly stamped jump ring. This spectacular bracelet would make for an incredible addition to any Victorian collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measures approximately 7 1/4" in length. The cluster charm hangs 1/2" in length and the cluster measures approximately 11/32" in diameter. The flower measures 1/2" in diameter. The rooster measures 1/2" tall and 5/16" wide. The hummingbird hangs about 1" long and 3/4" wide. The vase is 9/16" tall and 1/4" wide.
