Here is a very lovely and elegant antique bangle that quite simply will never go out of fashion or style and can so easily be worn with other antique jewellery, as well as being a perfect to wear alongside modern jewellery.
Made in 15 carat rose gold in Birmingham in 1893, 15 carat gold was only used in England from 1854 until 1931 making it harder to come by than 9 or 18 carat gold, and as well as this, the colour of the rose gold that this bangle has is just so beautiful with such an attractive warm tone to it.
Measuring 5.5mm wide and being oval and hinged allowing it to sit nice and close to the wrist, this will easily become a piece of jewellery that is perfect for any occasion as well as being so comfortable to wear day or night.
Fitted with a safety chain for added security, this antique bangle is as elegant today as when it was made over 130 years ago.

What is rose gold?
Rose gold is produced by adding copper to the pure gold when it is being alloyed along with other metals. This is done for two reasons. First, pure gold is too soft for jewellery, so other metals are added to harden it. And secondly, when copper is added, not only does this harden the gold, but it makes it a beautiful warm rose colour.
What is 15 carat gold?
15 carat gold was used in England between 1854 until 1931 making it harder to come by than other carats of gold. Also found in Australian jewellery, the colour of 15 carat gold often has a lovely warm rose colour to it.
