For any one fortunate enough to have an upcoming birthday in October this mesmerising antique bangle may be just what you have been searching for!
Dating to the late Victorian to very early Edwardian era, almost definitely crafted in Australia, from 9ct rose gold and adorned with a series of nine graduating solid white Opals which display a fiery play of colour reminiscent of glowing sunset with flashes of blues, greens and yellows against a simmering pink red undertone!
Interspersing the Opals are sixteen twinkling small ‘macle’ (rough-cut) diamonds whose sparkle compliments the Opals beautifully.
The sleek rosy gold - 9ct - bangle is hinged, oval in shape, and secures perfectly with a discreet push in box clasp and, for added security, the original safety chain is present also.
In quite extraordinary condition with no dulling, let alone chips, to the Opals and the bangle miraculously has no dents or dings, incredible condition for her approx 120 plus years.
Solid white Opals - Gemmological Association of Australian nomenclature type 1 - colour type N 8-9
16 tiny Macle (rough cut) diamonds
Internal - 5.6cm x 5.0cm
Very good to excellent antique condition. No chips or abrasions to Opals, all show a stunning play of colour, very uniform in appearance and well matched. No repairs. No dents or impressions to bangles. Claps works perfectly, safety chain is original. Quality antique piece of jewellery.
