|A silver bracelet from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) is set with a garnet and has the Victorian look that was the signature design style of jewelry from the delightful central highlands city of Kandy, the capital of the old Singhalese kingdom. The city was, and remains, the artistic and spiritual center of the country. Silver filigree work surrounds both the gemstone and hinge on this late 19th/early 20th century bracelet. The garnet is good quality—Sri Lanka continues to be known for fine gemstones—and is faceted and set to show its fire and sparkle. An interesting lock with prongs that slide into channels behind the stone opens to allow the sides of the hinged bracelet to swing out. The bracelet fits a small to medium-sized wrist, with an inside circumference of 7" (18 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
