Kirsten's Corner Jewelry
Victorian 14KT Rose Gold & Diamond Bracelet
A beautiful rose gold and diamond bracelet from the early Victorian era. This piece of jewelry features 7 gorgeous rose cut diamonds that are arranged in a descending order. The largest diamond at the center measures 4.9 mm in diameter and the smallest ones, at either end, measure 2.8 mm in diameter. Each diamond is within 8-pronged, raised buttercup settings that individually conform to the rose cut diamonds. There is a lovely hand-made quality about this piece of jewelry. It has an original bifurcated design and at the center a row of multi faceted diamonds. The silver foil backs of the diamonds give the diamonds a gray-ish hue that is very romantic and remind us of its antiquity. The bracelet is in great condition. Perfect for a 6.5 inch wrist, adding a feminine touch to any dress. It has a security chain so the bracelet will not fall off. A makers mark can be found a the interior of the clasp where the bracelet closes shut. It appears to be the letter A and V but I cannot determine the maker. The bracelet weighs 12.9 grams. It is hard to measure the total carat weight as the diamonds are rose cut and irregular, but the bracelet is approximately 2 diamond carats. A great find!
