Object Description

A stunning, fine and impressive antique seed pearl and hot enamel, 21 carat yellow gold gate bracelet; part of our diverse antique jewellery collections

This stunning antique Victorian bracelet has been crafted in 21 ct yellow gold.

The five oval links articulate and alternate with four pairs of linear links.

Each oval link is embellished with impressive vibrant royal blue and white hot-enamel*, in addition to applied yellow gold swept cross bars accented with a central millegrain decorated collet set seed pearl.

The paired linear links are each embellished with royal blue hot enamel to the anterior surface.

This gate bracelet** terminates at either end with a group of five short links and secure with a discrete, integrated push fit clasp.

This Victorian gold and enamel bracelet has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 21 ct gold.

This fine example of Victorian jewellery is supplied with a bespoke, contemporary box.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.

* Hot enamel is a material formed by firing powdered glass to create a hardened, durable hyaloid coating; also known as vitreous enamel, deriving from the Latin word ‘vitreum’, meaning ‘glass’. Due to the nature of the ornamentation deriving from glass, opposed to painted alternatives, the vibrant colour does not fade under ultraviolet light and it retains useful properties such as being smooth, hard, durable and easy to clean.

** Gate bracelets came into fashion during the Victorian era. The name ‘gate’ bracelet alludes to the unusual chain style of interlocked barred panels, emulating the gates and fences of English country estates and castles.
