French 2.40 Carat Rose-Cut Diamond and Enamel Bangle Bracelet
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
From 19th century France (most likely the Second Empire or Third Republic) comes this striking wrist bauble featuring a sizable, shimmering rose-cut diamond weighing 2.40 carats. The bezel-set, foil-backed stone glimmers above a multidimensional design dramatically colored with cobalt blue enamel accented with white enamel outlining, and further embellished with small glittering rose-cut diamond-set arches. Curved stylized fleur-de-lys elements adorn all four sides, with those set east and west leading to the intricately hand-engraved double-hinged bangle that closes via an adjustable buckle-style clasp. A truly exquisite, remarkable and ravishing rarity. Total diamond weight, 2.75 carats. Expertly hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold, it adjusts from 6 1/4 to 7 1/4 inches.
