The excitement, quality and rarity of this heirloom art deco bracelet is beyond measure. Entirely handmade the sapphire and diamond bangle is seamlessly designed so it stretches over your wrist without any clasp. The sides of the bracelet are each immaculately decorated with exquisite hand engraved floriate details. These pretty decorations are further enhanced by hand done milgrain finish. This detail is like an almost microscopic sized granulation which is hand applied around the settings and looks ethereal like lace! The alternating links of diamonds and sapphires sparkly and glitter in with the most luxurious color contrast. Each respectively set in platinum then 18K solid yellow gold. The sapphires themselves are genuine unheated Kashmir sapphires in stunning blue. Kashmir sapphires are almost the stuff of legend today due to their extreme rarity and quality. This is the first piece of jewelry in my entire career I have ever seen set with genuine Kashmir sapphires from that mine. So many sapphires are described as Kashmir referring to the color but are not Kashmir sapphires. But these amazing velvety cornflower blue natural untreated gems are genuine Kashmir sapphires from the legendary mine. Each gorgeous sapphire is channel set in yellow gold and square step cut. They each measure 2.5mm by 2.5mm on average with seven in each alternating gold segment of this magical bracelet. In total there are 35 of these rarest of rare gems! The total carat weight just of Kashmir sapphire is 4.20 carats. In between each opulent Kashmir sapphire section is a section of hand crafted platinum set with hand cut old European cut diamonds which are grain set. Each diamond measures 2.5mm in diameter on average. There are a total of 35 of these exquisite sparkly untreated diamonds each weighing 9 points. These sparkly eye clean white diamonds are SI clarity H/I color. The total diamond weight is 3.15 carats. Each precious Kashmir sapphire and hand cut fine white diamond has been set by hand by a master gem setter and master diamond setter respectively. The bracelet measures 3.1mm wide across the diamond set sections and 2.9mm wide across the astonishing sapphire set sections. It measures 6 5/16 in internal circumference unstretched. Stretched it extends to 7 11/16 approximately to allow it to be taken on and off over the hand. As stated this bracelet has no clasp. The sides of the bracelet have pierced galleries for maximum sparkle…. Every detail has been carefully planned, executed and finished with a standard of workmanship and skill you just do not see today or for that matter in much jewelry from the Art Deco era. It is in perfect condition ready to wear. All the fine diamonds and gems are contemporaneous to the bangle with no repairs of any kind. This piece is honestly beyond measure. It is an heirloom jewel with an opulence and elegance that is exciting and gorgeous. Full appraisal documents will accompany this amazing antique diamond bracelet.
