French Early-Art Deco Sapphire and Diamond Bracelet
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
Beautifully, expertly, and substantially crafted in platinum, this expandable link bracelet hails from early-20th century France (the marks were only used 1910-1912). The gently curved tonneau-shaped centerpiece highlights a midnight blue faceted oval sapphire weighing 1.30 carats (natural, no-heat, Australian origin). The sapphire is enhanced an all sides by matching dark blue calibre sapphires, further enlivened with small sparkling European-cut diamonds. Each link of the expandable band is studded with glittering rose-cut diamonds. A wonderful and eminently wearable Art Deco wrist bauble. Total sapphire weight - 3.30 carats, total diamond weight - 1.00 carat.
