Retro jewellery is often sculptured with large bold designs such as can be seen here in this very elegant and stylish 14ct rose and yellow gold Retro era bracelet made in Austria.
Dating from the 1950's, the use of both rose and yellow gold makes a lovely distinct style that highlights the design on the links.
With the inside section as well as the connecting sections made in rose gold and the outer parts is yellow gold, the colour of the rose gold has that wonderful warm tone that looks so beautiful on the skin and is complimented further by the yellow gold.
Measuring 1.2cm wide by 17.5cm in length, it is fitted with a safety chain for added security and is so comfortable and easy to wear during the day as well as to any function during the evening.
This is such an wonderful example of Retro jewellery and one that will always stand out while all the time look so elegant.

A brief history on Retro jewellery:
Retro describes jewellery produced between the later part of the 1930â€™s to the 1950â€™s, and also includes World War II. The styles and designs of the Art Deco jewellery still influenced designers in this era.
The retro movement was can be considered to be started by the head of Christieâ€™s jewellery department, Francois Curiel. He named the era for customers who requested jewellery with the Retro look. His realization of this era brought great popularity and prestige to retro jewellery, resulting in the increase in value and price to these designs. Retro jewellery can be easily characterised by large chunky somewhat over the top designs in not only brooches and bracelets but also rings. The use of rose gold was also quite common even in 18ct.
Large gem set brooches with a combination of such stones such as rubies and diamonds in a floral motif where not uncommon.
