An exceptional c1880 Victorian-era bracelet depicting a dragon.Victorians designers were great appropriators, and this bracelet is an excellent example: a dragon copied from Eastern art, and intricate granulation and wirework copied from ancient Etruscan jewelry. In the 19th century, archaeological discoveries inspired a revival of both Etruscan designs, and goldsmithing techniques. In 14K gold with a bloomed finish, giving the appearance of higher karat gold. With a 0.45ct old mine cut diamond set in the mouth. 

Materials

Approx. 0.45ct Old Mine Cut Diamond, Ruby and Garnet Eyes, 14K Gold

Date

c1880

Condition

Good. A small dent at the back. Wear to the bloomed surface, particularly on the back. One eye is a garnet (while the other is a ruby) and is probably a replacement.

Size

Inside Dimensions: 2-1/8 x 1-3/4" (fits an average wrist)
Width: 20 to 5mm
