Exquisite in its proportions and craftsmanship this high carat yellow gold Turquoise and Diamond bracelet dates to we believe circa 1890 and is hallmarked with a lion’s head in a octagonal frame for Portugal between 1886 and 1938 for alloys of 19.2 K gold (800/1000).
Modelled in ten elongated tapered segments with ornate scroll work and each alternating segment is set with four natural Turquoise and four natural rose cut diamonds, a total of 20 Diamonds and 20 Turquoise in total.
To each tapered section is a contrasting ornate cap ( we believe is silver but could be white gold ) and the bracelet is secured with a push-in slim box clasp with the added security of a safety clasp.
Beautifully made, rare, and in excellent condition this bracelet will fit a petite wrist as it measures 18cm.
This would make a wonderful addition to your collection and perhaps an heirloom to be handed down throughout the family.
