Dating to c.1910, I am pleased to present this fabulous Edwardian moonstone bracelet for the consideration of my Ruby Lane clientele!
Measuring 2 3/8" inside diameter, this is one of the prettiest and most cunning antique bracelets that I have acquired in quite a while, and I have never seen one set with moonstones! Wrought from 10k gold (but possibly very heavily gold plated; my acid testing read it as 10k), this elegant bracelet boasts a floral motif, and is set with three glowing blue moonstones!
The largest moonstone measures 1/2" in diameter, and weighs approx 7 carats on it's own! The two smaller moonstones measure 6 mm in diameter, and weigh approx. 2 carats each. That adds up to 11 carats of radiant, antique moonstones! The moonstones are set in rubbed-over collets with open backs.
One of the more fascinating aspects of this bracelet is the early use of a fold-over clasp. This jewel is fitted with pins, and the clasp just folds over, and locks soundly! The combination of the textured swirls and the shining gold makes for even more elegance and texture. This bracelet will fit a lady's wrist up to 7".
Weighing in at a substantial 17.47 grams, this gorgeous bracelet will take you from the office to the theater in high Edwardian style! It looks smashing worn with anything from blue jeans to a ball gown, and just LOOK at those moonstones! Best of all, this bracelet has survived 110+ years in as fine a condition as the most discerning collector could hope for; there are no losses, chips, or visible wear here!
Simply a delight as well as a rarity, this moonstone jewel is just about as fresh as the day it was first worn by an Edwardian lady of fashion! If you collect the finest in moonstone-set antique jewelry, this pretty bracelet should be on your arm and in your collection! It would also make a thrilling gift for any lady who loves antique jewelry, and will be shipped in a gift box. Do not miss this cunning bracelet; layaway is not available on this item,but it is priced for quick sale, and USPS Priority mail shipping is FREE!
