This of a kind silver, garnet bracelet is French, circa 1860. It is meticulously designed with lozenge shaped plaques centered with cabochon garnets, alternating with finely detailed cherubs. Vermeil (gold wash on silver) is used for contrast, enhancing the unique design. It is Renaissance Revival, with a sophistication on the scale of Jules Wiese and Froment Meurice.

It measures 7 5/8ths inches long X 1 3/8ths wide. It opens and closes with an integral push clasp. There is a French guarantee stamp for silver (800) and a maker's mark which I cannot decipher.

It is bold, and so finely rendered. The silver is silky smooth, and the patina rich and original. I would expect no less from a piece of fine French jewelry. France, circa 1860
