ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Here is a unique and interesting bracelet, to say the least. Seven thick, translucent burnt orange carnelian tablets are each artfully hand carved with Arabic calligraphy (the center piece is two-sided), and from what we can gather, one piece is inscribed with a quotation from the first line of Quran, while the others are evidently inscribed with the names of individuals. The seven pieces appear quite old, we're guessing 18th century, while the 18K frames and bracelet are late 19th century vintage. A rare and remarkable wearable collectable. Measures 8 1/4 inches.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
