French Art Deco Sapphire and Diamond Bracelet - GIA
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
This breathtaking early Art Deco wrist bauble, by way of 1920s France, centers on a gleaming, ultra-deep midnight blue (verging on black) rectangular sapphire, weighing approximately 4.50 carats. The intriguing gemstone is adjoined on each side by tapering platinum links outlined with lively royal blue calibre sapphires that border glittering bright white single-cut diamonds. The stunning 2 7/8 -inch-long centerpiece transitions to classic geometric platinum bracelet links. An early, all original Art Deco delight. As is often the case, the calibre sapphires are a mixture of natural and synthetic (during the 1920s- 30s, synthetic stones were used for their color consistency and flawless clarity, with the differences between them and their natural counterparts discernible only with a microscope). Center sapphire accompanied by a gemological report from GIA stating: No heat, origin not stated. Total sapphire weight - 7.25 carats, total diamond weight - 1.00 carat. 7 1/8 inches long.
