ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Here is the most beautiful and amazing woven hair bracelet we’ve ever seen. The center plaque and clasp combination highlights a uniquely-cut, elongated octagonal amethyst with a faceted back and a cabochon (or buff-cut) top. The 18 karat yellow gold cartouche plaque is elaborately decorated with highly-baroque repousse work. However, the truly amazing aspect of this rare and gorgeous piece is the 4 and 3/4 inch-long by 1 and 3/16 inch-wide bracelet composed of intricately woven human hair! The reverse of the bracelet is engraved - "Esther Barlow Heyworth - Oct, 13th, Feb 1828 At, 18." 7 inches long by 1 and 3/4 inches wide. Extraordinary and, after almost two centuries, in pristine condition!

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.
