Georgian 20 Karat Gold Bracelet with Turquoise Heart Locket, circa 1820

About

An exceptional Georgian 20 karat gold round belcher link bracelet. Each link is chased with either star or forget me knot motifs. The scroll engraved padlock is set with five turquoise stones, set as a forget me knot, so significant as the plaited hair in the back of the locket reveals. A star-spangled barrel clasp completes this superb example of the Georgian art. A safety chain is fitted for security. Here is an extract from Georgian Jewellery 1714-1830 by Ginny Reddington with Olivia Dawes describing the typical attributes of a bracelet like this. The Georgian Chain There is no other item of jewellery more distinctly Georgian than the long gold chain of woven, knitted, engraved or stamped out links usually joined end to end with a decorative clasp such as an outstretched hand or a barrel studded with tiny gemstones. The more intricate of these might take many weeks to make. The pattern of the links on Georgian chains reveal an endless array of stamped dots, stars, stripes or circles that were impressed on to fine gold sheeting and almost seamlessly joined together. This is a delightful example of a late Georgian gold bracelet in very good order. Please feel free to contact us for more details, images or videos. *Please note that when opened the total length is around 8½" but when closed this reduces to 6" so will only fit daintier wrists, sadly this piece can not be altered or extended.* DIMENSIONS - 6" when closed, 8 ½" when open. Width of links ¼" WEIGHT - 11g MATERIALS - 20 karat yellow gold/turquoise/hair. HALLMARKS - None CONDITION - Good, commensurate with age.
