Victorian Etruscan Wirework & Carnelian Gold Bracelet

Offered By A. Brandt + Son

An absolutely exquisite Etruscan wirework and carnelian bracelet from the Victorian era! This gorgeous piece is fairly large in size and made with 18kt yellow gold. It has a very royal appearance and adorns a single cabochon carnelian stone set within a fantastically ornate setting. The carnelian stone has a double frame border with twisted rope wirework and an open channel surrounding it. It sets atop a round pedestal shaped center that is wonderfully decorated with very fine Etruscan wirework throughout and rests high above your wrist. The band of the bracelet also carries the Etruscan wirework design, covering the entire surface of the piece. The bracelet is hinged on both sides and the clasp is hidden within the band. A very unusual and fantastic piece, this bracelet would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
