This bracelet has it all! Deep royal blue enameling accentuates the bold swirl decoration while carefully placed rose cut diamonds adorn three different sections. A cluster of diamonds forms the central focus while singular diamonds highlight smaller adorned areas on each side. The combination of blue enameling, diamonds, and sweetly detailed links blends together to create a fabulously stunning bracelet.
Rich yellow 18kt gold forms the base bracelet which has lightly engraving chasing on each link. Hinged links allow the bracelet to wear like a bangle. Unusual grooved clasp is adjustable as it can be "cinched" in to fit a 5.75" wrist or a 7" wrist at maximum. This adjustable mechanism is unlike any we have seen. Tongue which is inserted in clasp is hallmarked. Weighs 22grams.

Victorian jewelry originated in England with the period from 1861-1885 known as The Grand Period. We specialize mostly in jewelry from this era. It is bolder in construction as this time frame saw women’s roles transitioning. A switch from dainty to bold construction was demanded due to women becoming more prevalent in business and demanding the right to vote. This move to a bolder look and increased demand was also attributed to the middle class having more access to higher paying jobs and being able to emulate the wealthy. Jewelry was used as a sign of a woman’s wealth and place in society; thus, the more jewelry a woman wore, the wealthier she appeared. 9kt gold became all the rage during this time as it was more affordable for the upper middle class, and it allowed them to denote their rising status in society. The vast majority of gold jewelry found during this period is of this karat content. Earrings, bangles, and chains were now being worn during the day and were no longer reserved for evening. Women of this period were no different than women today; each enjoyed her own style and her pieces were special and significant to her. Her personality emanated from her jewelry.Dimensions:
