This bracelet is truly exceptional and has all the charm and character of being made in the Art Deco era, combined set with genuine antique cut diamonds.
Hand made in the 1920's in 18 carat white gold and platinum, in total there are eleven genuine antique European cut diamonds that graduate to elegantly from the smallest ones at each end, to the largest one in the centre that measures 1.25 carats. In total the eleven diamonds come together to total an impressive 6.06 carats and typical of the Art Deco era, instead of the round diamonds set into round setting, they are set into square settings with the corners cut, as well as having a millgrain finish which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge of the setting.
And then to complete the elegance, the sides of the settings have been beautifully and expertly hand engraved, showing just how much time and detail went into making this bracelet all those years ago.
Fitted on a band that has springs to allow it to stretch over the wrist and sit perfectly when on, it is also fitted with tow safety catches and a safety chain.
This is a spectacular Art Deco bracelet and one that is destined to make any woman feel like royalty when it is in the wrist.

What is a European cut diamond?
During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus. This was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. These stones can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone.
The culets became smaller, as it was realised that light could leak out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury, with further modifications through the century. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
