This amazing and rare pigeon blood red Burma ruby and diamond bracelet is hallmarked with the second kokshnik mark of 1908 -1917. The remaining mark has worn off but would have originally had an 84 on it, as well as an import city mark like Moscow. The bracelet may have originally been made in Belgium or France. During this time, Cartier and many other highly respected firms were exhibiting their finest jewellery in St Petersburg. This bracelet can hold its own with the finest jewellery houses, and we were so thrilled to have found it! Each link is curved and articulated. Not only that, it is as well made in the back as it is in the front. A sign of its craftsmanship.
The bracelet reminds us of the finesse and glamour of pre-revolution Russia and is, at once, both a window to the past, as well as a marvellous addition to any jewellery collection.
This bracelet comes with a certificate dated 08/01/20 stating the sixty rubies are of Burma (Myanmar) origin and Natural non heated red transparent calibrated cut weighting approx 6.5 carats in total. One of the sixty rubies is of Thailand origin.
