Austro Hungarian Empire produced fabulous Renaissance and Gothic revival jewellery from the 1860's right across to 1910-1915. This opulent and highly decorated style became fashionable and a signature style of the Austro Hungarian territories. The pieces ranged from museum worthy with wonderful enamels, high quality natural gemstones and involved designs to the more modest and less expensive pieces set with paste stones. Most were fashioned out of silver and gold gilded, decorated on the reverse and designed to have a look reminiscent of the early workmanship and setting styles.
Our lovely Austro Hungarian bracelet dates to around 1880-1890. It is a lovely quality piece, not hallmarked and testing 900 silver with some of the gilt remaining throughout. It is bezel set with an array of gemstones, which we had checked by a qualified gemologist. There are blue sapphires, rubies, emeralds and pink and blue natural spinels. One of the sapphires had been changed at some point with an early synthetic sapphire and one small emerald by the clasp has been replaced with a green paste stone. These both look replaced a long time ago. The opaque white enamel features on the larger sections and adds a lovely touch. .
The bracelet is 8 inches long and can be made smaller by removing one of the links if desired and we can do this for you. The larger links are 21 mm long and the smaller ones 15.6. The width of the links are 11.8 mm and 9.2 mm respectively. It weighs 16.4 grams and is in great antique condition with a well working clasp that closes with a tight and secure snap.
We love ..... this multi gem colourful Austro Hungarian bracelet. It looks great on and we think it will make a sparkling feature on your wrist, stacked with plain gold and silver chain bracelets.
