Finely crafted 18 karat yellow gold bracelet featuring 12 garnets and 21 sapphires. The bracelet is from the Victorian era, around the 1880's. This bracelet is a statement piece with an intricate ribbon design wrapping around a succession of garnets and sapphires set in serrated bezels. 


The central part of the bracelet features 5 garnets and 12 white sapphires.  The band is completely articulated, making the bracelet incredibly comfortable as it wraps around the wrist with ease, and feature 7 garnets and 9 white sapphires. All garnets and white sapphires are set in reflective closed backs which increases their brilliance. Some of the garnets are placed at the junctions between the links and are able to appear and disappear from between the folds of the gold ribbon design. The gold ribbon is mat with edges polished which truly makes it come to life. This is a rather unique piece, made with outstanding details and craftsmanship.


The garnets are of a very deep wine color, ranging from deep red to a dark raspberry. On the central part of the bracelet, they have an oval cut and range in size from 9.5x8.5mm to  9x7.5mm. On the sides of the bracelet the garnets have a round cut and measure between 6mm and 5.5mm. The sapphires all have a round cut and range is size from 3.5 mm wide to 2.5 mm wide for the ones closest to the central garnet. The sapphires are all 'old miner' cut and therefore show a pretty large culet.


The lengths of the bracelet is 19 cm once closed (7.5 inches) and 3.6 cm at its widest point. It closes with a box clasp that is fully functional. The total weight of the bracelet is 24.8 grams.
