Victorian 14K Gold Diamond and Sapphire Silver Top Bracelet


This elegant sapphire and diamond Victorian bracelet contains a saturated dark blue sapphire surrounded by Old Mine Cut diamonds. It is flanked by diamond encrusted wavy banner-like ribbons along the band. The central element is reminiscent of a celestial orb, highlighted by the tails of a comet on each side. Because the top of the bracelet is set in silver, the Old Mine Cut diamonds stand out against the blackened patina. The diamonds are bead set and graduate in size down the ribbon element. The central orb is held in a crown setting that is even more beautiful when viewed from the side. The bracelet’s many stones are held in silver; the rest of the bracelet is 14k gold. The band has a knife’s edge that enhances the elegance of the piece.

The antique natural sapphire measures 5.5 x 5.3 mm. Its approximate weight is .7 of a carat. The sapphire has beautiful zoning that makes the stone quite unique.

The bracelet contains 25 natural antique Old Mine Cut diamonds. The diamonds that surround the sapphire are 2 mm each. The diamonds along the band graduate in size, ranging from 2.5 mm to 1 mm. The bracelet contains approximately 1 carat of diamonds. The diamonds vary from G-H in color and VS2- SL2 in clarity.

The bracelet is 6.5” x 3/4” and weighs 8.3 grams. It has a safety chain for added security.

Circa 1880. Because this piece is so timeless, it stacks well with contemporary bracelets.
