2 American Victorian 14k Gold Engraved Floral Bangle Bracelets
Regular price $2,160.00
Presented is a fine pair of American Victorian 14K gold bangle bracelets. The bracelets are beautifully engraved with elegant flowers and ivy leaves rendered in black enamel against a textured background. The bracelets both have plunger style clasps with safety chains to prevent loss. The bracelets were made in the United States between the 1850s and the early 1880s. This is a wonderful pair of Victorian gold bracelets, very hard-to-find. The bracelets are not marked, as expected. We have tested them with nitric acid and guarantee them to be 14K gold. The condition is excellent. The clasps are in great working order and both snap shut with an audible click. One bracelet has two dent on the inside which are not visible from the front, and only appear as a very slight dent on the side. The other bracelet has no dents. The inside edge of the bracelets has some wear through on the very high points, but this is minor and is not noticeable except on very close inspection. There appears to be no wear to the enamel. There are no other dents, no breaks, and no repairs. Each bracelet is 1/4 inch wide. The interior circumference is 5 3/8 inches. To wear this bracelet comfortably your wrist should be no more than 5 1/8 inches.
The weight is 24.6 grams.
