Art Deco Onyx and Diamond Filigree Bangle Bracelet
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
Art Deco filigree bracelets of this type almost always come as link bracelets, here's a rare and striking exception to the rule--a beautiful bangle. Sturdily die-struck and hand finished in 14K white gold, this Depression-era delight (circa 1930) focuses on a faceted glossy black onyx navette-shaped centerpiece pierced with a trio of small sparklers. These in turn are fancifully framed with delicately milgrained filigree work 'tied' up on each side with diamond-centered bows. Fine filigree work continues all around the hinged bangle, artfully enhanced on the sides with neoclassical embossing. A double safety catch seals the deal. Measures 6 3/4 inches.
