JEWELRY > ESTATE FINE
Material: 14 Karat Gold ~ testedSize: Length = 6 & 3/8 inches, Each Cameo: apx.
13/16 X 5/8Quantity: 1 bracelet
Seven of the cameos are gold framed, with open backs. The eighth cameo, where the
clasp is inserted, has a solid gold back, which enables the bracelet to be securely
I am not positive, but due to some of the figures I immediately recognize in the
bracelet, such as Diana, Mercury, and Zeus, I believe it possible that this may have
originally been a seven day of the week bracelet and matching pendant, that at some
point years ago was combined into one, which extended the bracelet into a very wearable
size; 6 & 3/8 closed. Open: 6 & 11/16.
The bracelet is not hallmarked, but tested 14 karat gold. This result was confirmed
in a second independent jeweler test. The gold shows a slightly rosy tone.
The bracelet is in overall extremely nice estate condition. Seven of the cameos
are completely free of chips, cracks, breaks, etc. The eighth cameo, the one with
the solid gold back, does show a faint line near the very inside edge. This appears
to be old and does not affect the integrity of the cameo at all, because it is securely
and firmly encased in a bezel mount, with a solid back. Aesthetically this tiny
line is very hard to detect; I did not in fact even see it until viewed under a magnifying
glass. Please see last double cameo close up, (image #5) near the mid/lower left
shoulder of cameo on the right. The only other noted item is the possibility if
a few more modern chain links (1950's?) added between first cameo and female part
of clasp. Certainly easily replaceable if desired.
True old coral cameo bracelets are definitely becoming harder to find, and this is
a very nice, finely detailed, early example.
