A chunky square profiled bangle from c.1880. This fine piece has been tested to confirm it is high carat, 15ct with a higher carat gold plating, expertly crafted to form a semi hollow piece with an impressive weight of 18.9g. The bangle is set with an old cut spinel in a classic starburst setting, the deep pinky orange stone perfectly complimented by the rich yellow gold metal.
To the inside of the band there is a hand etched inscription that reads “J.J. from A.M. May 22nd 1884” giving us a peek into the history of this beautiful piece. Overall, the bangle is in good condition however there is some surface wear and tarnishing to the metal to note (we can happily polish this free of charge before shipping but like to leave this decision with the future buyer) and the hinge is a little loose, although secure.
