We see quite a lot of jewelry here at Lang Antiques, and yet we can’t recall coming across anything quite like this striking, fanciful and substantial antique bracelet dating from the latter-1800s. An intriguing amalgam of Victorian decorative styles, this piece combines Neo-Gothic tracery (check out the hand-piercing on the reverse of the bracelet) with rose-cut diamond studded architectural finial motifs and a prescient glimpse of early Modernism in the form of circular plaques with engine-turned engraving coated in steely blue ‘guilloche’ enamel. (Not to mention the cool sapphire and diamond “bowtie” links.) Meticulously hand-crafted in 14k rose and yellow gold with a handsome time-worn patina, this impressive and theatrical bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide.
