Here is an early Art Deco gold and platinum diamond bangle that is so elegant and simple yet stands out so beautifully on the wrist.
Hand made in 15ct gold and platinum, this bangle is set with three large diamonds yet in such a refined way that it shows so much class and grace in its design.
The three diamonds are all early European cut diamonds which were the forerunner to today’s modern round brilliant cut diamond as they both share 58 facets to each diamond, yet as these diamonds were cut by hand and the knowledge of light reflecting in and around a diamond was not yet completely known, they have different angles so therefore a higher crown and pavilion.
The centre diamond measures 1.05 carats in weight and this is flanked on each side by one diamond weighing 0.82 carats and the other 0.90 carats, both sizable in their own right and a perfect accompaniment to the centre diamond. They are bezel set in platinum and are all J in colour and Vs to Si in clarity and from the end of one diamond across to the end of the other this distance measures 33.1mm by 10.2mm wide at the centre.
Fitted with a safety chain for added security, being a hinged bangle allows it to sit nice and close to the wrist and day or night is destined to always be admired and appreciated for its elegant simplicity.
There is no doubt that genuine antique cut diamonds are now in strong demand, and to find three that total 2.77 carats is a wonderful and quite rare find.
