VICTORIAN BRACELET WITH BANDED AGATE
Gilding adds dramatic interest as does the frame around the multi-banded agate bracelet. The gold does not tarnish and has never needed polish of any kind. Not at all delicate, of sound construction and beautifully made, the bracelet stands on its own for daily wear. It is a good example of antique jewelry appreciated for its design, style, condition and workmanship. Much time and thought was put into design and manufacturing even after the industrial revolution. The English did not judge their jewelry by gold content or gemstones alone. Many, many alternative materials were pricey and a la mode such as pinchbeck, gilded metal, cut steel, paste, gutta percha, vulcanite and bog oak, This bracelet is in excellent condition, comfortable and handsomely dramatic.
