ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Blue flowers add a particularly pretty stroke of color to nature's palette. This intriguing and ingeniously designed bracelet by *Cartier, circa 1940, presents five bright gold blooms, each accented on the diagonal with exquisitely rendered leaves. By the wonder of reflection, the flowers are colored by vibrant morning glory-blue enamel that embellishes the undersides of the inner petals and the gold-topped centers. An utterly alluring, fascinating and fabulous jewel. Hand fabricated in two-tone (rose and yellow) 14K gold, it measures 1 3/8 by 8 inches. *Although mysteriously unsigned, we've seen signed versions of the exact bracelet and the Cartier patent info (Pat. 219922) is available upon request.

About Retro Jewelry

Hollywood glam got creative during the war era, when strategic factors forced jewelers to do without certain materials. Rather than scale back, they took the streamlined shapes of the Art Deco and went big, bold, and gold with them! Retro power pieces segued from the Jazz Age to the Fabulous Fifties, creating many motifs of vintage jewelry along the way.

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.
