Victorian Etruscan Double Ram's Head Bypass Bracelet



An impressive statement bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 14kt gold, the bangle incorporates a double ram's head motif into a stylish bypass design. Each 3-dimensional ram's head is incredibly detailed, including curling horns, slanted eyes, sculpted facial features, and lightly etched texture to represent soft fur. Applied Etruscan wirework and beadwork accents carry onto the bracelet band, adding further dimensional with eye-catching scrolls and swirls! A smooth, matte finish and recently restored gold plating provide the perfect finishing touches, giving the piece a luxurious look and feel. The bracelet is hinged at the side, where it opens and closes with a discreet push clasp. An attached gold safety chain provides additional security when worn. Underneath one of the ram's heads is a small gold plaque stamped with two indistinguishable maker's marks. An outstanding collector's piece with a strong Victorian look, this bracelet is a true antique treasure! The interior of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures about 2 1/2" wide and 2 1/8" tall. It would fit nicely on a medium to large sized wrist. Each ram's head measures about 7/8" long and 5/8" wide. The front of the bracelet measures 1" wide where the bypass design intersects, and the back of the bracelet measures 1/4" wide and thick. The total pennyweight of the piece is 19.4 dwt (31.3 grams). The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, which was recently re-plated to restore its finish. The Etruscan details remain intact. The hinge and clasp are secure and in good working condition, and the safety chain is secure.
