Georgian Wide Banded Agate Pinchbeck Bracelet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

There are times when man can enhance nature as he did when placing naturalbanded agates from various parts of the earth with the golden metal created by Christopher Pinchbeck. Genuine Pinchbeck Rosettes frame earth toned agates that are separated by gold bar links. All colors are in harmony. The translucent stones are a kaleidescope when held to the light, their colors maximized by the beautiful pinchbeck framework. A sound clasp and safety chain insure you against loss. The bracelet is in fine condition. It is a delicious treat. Dates to early or mid 19th century. Links are 1 inch high
Pinchbeck is a gold-like metal, the formula which has been kept between Christopher Pinchbeck, a London watchmaker and his son. It appears to be gold in every respect and keeps its color with no loss, fading or darkening. It was far superior to gold plate or gilded metal that followed later. Pinchbeck or "Pinch" existed only a short period of time and became, therefore, a rare metal and important part of jewelry history. It is in many cases as expensive as gold.
