Antique Bracelet of Braided Gold and Diamonds

Description: Golden braids wrap around as the clasp with nested diamonds sits atop the wrist. The design was made to show the closure or clasp that is sprinkled with small flowers made of granulation, Granulation is the early Etruscan technique of adding miniscule gold balls to a surface without the use of solder. It was and still is not understood how the Etruscans accomplished this art. After years of trial and error, jewelers in nineteenth century Italy discovered their own method of granulation and the process was beautifully revived. See our item# 936818 and item item # 939015. Fine condition. Anerican. 14kt gold
