Dating from around 1895, this bangle from the Art Nouveau period embraced not only designs inspired from nature but also the use of the hard to find green gold.
On the front of the bangle is a wonderful floral design typical of Art Nouveau jewellery.
However the charming aspect of this is the use of rose gold and then green gold for the leaves.
Green gold was made using cadmium during the alloying process and it wasn't realised for a few years that this chemical made it toxic while it was in this stage.
However once cooled down from its molten stage it is perfectly safe to touch, polish and of course wear and is of course why green gold is so hard to find in jewellery due to its brief use during this time.
The bangle itself measures 2.6cm wide and is hinged allowing it to sit nice and close to the wrist and with the sterling silver and combination of rose and green gold is so easy to wear with so many outfits.
With a fabulous design combined with rose and green gold, this is certainly a fabulous piece that will always be a talking point whenever it is worn.
