Fine example of a Victorian Bohemian garnet bangle dating to the late Victorian era studded with a plethora of lush dark plumby red Garnets.
A three dimensional flower motif to the centre, interestingly with not often seen flat garnets along with the rose cut Bohemians, flowing to the bangle segment which has the rose-cut Bohemian garnets in two rows for its full circumference.
Set in ‘Garnet gold’ or more precisely ‘Tombac’ which is an alloy of copper and zinc used to imitate gold and very commonly used in Bohemian Garnet jewellery during this era.
In simply wonderful condition for its age this striking bangle is substantial at over 19 grams and looks incredible on the wrist.
Bohemian and round cuts
Internal circumference 16cm - Oval internal measurements 5.5cm x 5.0cm
Flower head in centre 1.56cm
Very very good antique condition. All Garnets are original, no apparent damage, no re-gluing. Clasp closes securely, original safety chain also. Three very very shallow impressions to inside of bangle to Tombac, of no significance. Gorgeous bangle!
