An exquisite antique opal doublet bracelet, dating to the late Edwardian era, circa 1910's! The Australian bracelet is made of 9ct gold, the colour is a lovely warm antique rose hue.

The bracelet consists of 5 hinged links, and three links boasting three tantalising opal doublet gems. Each of the opals display striking harlequin like patterns with vivid colours of the full spectrum - red, greens, blues, purple, yellow and orange. The colours dance and play across the face in a spectacular display! There is a taper in the links and opal sizes with the largest link and opal placed in centre, and graduating down in size either side. Opals measure approximately 1 x 16.50mm x 13.0mm (centre) and 2 x 13.40mm x 10.0mm (side), total estimated weight of the opals are 7.00cts - 8.00cts. The opals are on natural potch (colourless opal), and are likely mined either from the Coober Pedy, or White Cliffs field in the early 20th century.

The bezel-set opals are flanked with flower accents, as well a rope embellishment along each side of opal. The two end links display single flower accents resting on angled wire designs. There is a sturdy box tongue connection which secures with a firm click. A safety chain is attached for extra security, Stamped "9c" (denoting 9ct gold) and "H T" on the reverse of clasp.

A tantalizing antique bracelet - sure to receive compliments! A wonderful piece of Australian history!
