These lovely wide antique sterling silver bangles are typical of the late Victorian period of the 1890's and not only sit nice and close to the wrist thanks to its oval hinged shape and design, but look even more amazing when they are highlighted with rose and green gold as can be seen here in this one. Measuring 32.1mm wide, the design running along the edge looks so elegant as does the beautiful floral design in the the middle. This is where the use of both rose and the rarer green gold work perfectly to enhance and highlight the bangle. Gold can be made in different colours by being alloyed with other metals, such as to produce rose gold, it is made by primarily adding more copper to the gold when being alloyed resulting in a lovely warm tone to it, and today although not very common, green gold is made by adding silver to the gold, however the green colour is more a soft green-yellow colour. Years ago cadmium was added resulting in a stronger colour, and while never a strong green such as yellow or white gold, the tone of green in antique pieces is more pronounced and is used perfectly here to highlight the leaves in the design. With a border highlighted in rose gold to somewhat frame each segment, this is a perfect example of an antique piece of jewellery that is not only 130 years old but one that can so easily be worn on a daily basis and dressed up for that special event during the evening.
