This late 19th-century hinged bangle is a real beauty. It’s made of 14-karat gold, set with 18 half-pearls that are enhanced with cobalt-blue enamel. The back of the bracelet is simply decorated with a raised, thin gold band that terminates at both ends with a figure-8. Both rims have recesses along the edges all the way around. The tongue and groove clasp is very secure; a gold security chain with a spring-ring catch is a later addition. The maker’s mark of MC&Co. is at this time unidentified. There is a tiny dent on the inside of the bracelet; otherwise, it is in lovely condition with a soft patina from age. It will receive a slight cloth polishing before shipment to its new home. The internal diameter of the bangle is 2 inches, and the internal circumference is roughly 6 ¼ inches. The width measures about 5/8 inches. Gross weight: 39.5 grams
