c1880 Superb Victorian 18k Rose & Yellow Gold Ribbed Link Bracelet
Presented is a superb American Victorian 18 karat gold ribbed link bracelet.
This piece dates to around the 1870s-1880s. This is a wonderful quality example
of a popular Victorian bracelet style. The bracelet consists of ribbed oval
links in yellow and rose gold. If you look closely, the bracelet is actually
done as two interlinked chains. The clasp is done in an 'invisible' style, where
the final link on one end is actually a spring-ring. The links are very well
made, with a nice feeling of weight.
The bracelet is in excellent condition. The clasp functions well and closes
securely. There are no crushed links, no breaks, and no repairs.
This piece is not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested it with nitric
acid and guarantee it to be 18 karat gold.
The bracelet is about 8 5/8 inches long.
The bracelet weighs 40.9 grams.
