Once in a while, a piece of jewellery comes past that just has to be admired and appreciated from every angle and respect, and this Art Deco era natural pearl bracelet set with a platinum diamond and onyx slide is simply spectacular.
Cartier are still known worldwide as being masters of some of the finest jewellers around, and this was certainly no exception during the height of the Art Deco period of the 1920's when this Cartier bracelet was made.
The pearls in the bracelet are just as amazing as the diamonds and onyx, as all the pearls are natural and have not been cultured.
It is estimated that 1 in 10,000 oysters produce a natural pearl, and each and every pearl in this bracelet is natural as opposed to cultured making this factor alone truly amazing.
The slide bar is made in platinum and signed "Cartier" and is then highlighted with 41 rose cut diamonds and surrounded by 24 pieces of facetted onyx with a further 6 set into the "clasp" and all designed in a delightful buckle.
From end to end the bracelet measures 16.8cm in length by 1.7cm wide, and the platinum "buckle" measures 1.7cm in length by 2.2cm wide.
Cartier has always been famous the world over for the exquisite jewellery that has been produced in the Cartier workshops especially over the Art Deco period of the 1920's, and to have a Cartier bracelet such as this is a magnificent treasure indeed.
