Here is a truly spectacular Art Deco sapphire and diamond bracelet dating from the 1920’s that was not only so exquisitely hand made in 18ct white gold and platinum, but also set with the most beautiful natural sapphires and highlighted with diamonds.
So many pieces of jewellery from Art Deco era of the 1920’s to the 1940’s show the quality of craftsmanship and this bracelet is certainly no exception.
Set with nine oval facetted Ceylonese sapphires, the colour from these sapphires is just magnificent and all show the most perfect blue colour combined with fantastic transparency and really stand out against the pure white of the platinum. The sapphires total 6.68 carats and in each section there are six rose cut diamonds to highlight each sapphire. These diamonds total 1.08 carats, and both the sapphires and diamonds have the most beautiful millgrain finish which was typical of jewellery of the Art Deco era.
This can be seen as the fine crimping along the edge of the setting which adds so much more character and shows the attention to detail that went into hand making this divine bracelet all those years ago. And then there is the elegant hand engraving of the scroll work on the sides to add to the charm and character of this bracelet. This sapphire and diamond section measures 8.6mm wide and will always be admired every time that it is worn.
Then the rest of the bracelet is made up of the most tactile mesh link in 18ct gold that feels so sleek around the wrist and measures 18cm in length with even the clasp being beautifully made.
From end to end there is no doubt that this is one of the finest and most elegant examples of Art Deco jewellery around and one that will always be admired and loved.
