A gorgeous and very detailed statement turquoise bracelet from the late Art Deco era, c1930! This lovely Chinese export bracelet is made of Chinese silver and features six luscious greenish blue natural turquoise gems. The three larger oval cabochon turquoise measure approximately 20mm x 15mm and interspaced in the links are three round cabochon turquoises each measuring approximately 5.60mm. The decorative very fine wirework (aka filigree silver) is applied onto a silver mesh and resembles flowers, leaves and swirls. A coiled wire accent borders each bezel-set turquoise gem. The six curved links are connected by a hinge - and adding a more dramatic look is the combination of a small and large link. A tongue -clasp is integrated with the end link and secures with a firm click,. There is a safety chain for extra security which can be hooked into place whilst wearing. The bracelet has a wonderful patina, adding further texture and character.
A gorgeous statement bracelet. One for the lover of turquoise!
