Antique c1920 Hand Made Indian Gilded Silver Ruby Bracelet 6 1/2 inches
Presented is a very lovely gilded silver hinged, beaded bracelet with a ruby and floral accents. This is a vintage, hand crafted bracelet most likely made in India circa 1920's. This is a lushly elaborate piece, with wonderful gold luster. There is a gold flower on one side and a bright red ruby-centered flower on the other. The round-cut ruby is about 5/8 carats in weight, 5 millimeters in diameter. The bracelet has a safety chain with a heart charm and the cuff opens and clasps very securely via a threaded screw with a little six-petal flower finial.
There is a tiny stamp on the heart charm that may be a signature maker's mark. The bracelet tests silver and is gilded with gold.
The condition of the bracelet is excellent. I see one tiny spec of scratched gilt not readily apparent, and not showing on the ruby side of the bracelet at all.
Size: 6 1/2 - Fits a wrist less than 6 1/2 inches around.
