Retro Amethyst 9ct Gold Bracelet, Wide Heavy Vintage 1960s Bangle. 15.5ctw, 69.5g.Add to Wishlist
Incredible amethyst retro bracelet crafted in 9 carat yellow gold. This is just the most beautifully crafted piece! Each of the eight sections are cast so that they are the same all the way around. It's a scissor or x style design which is bark textured to the exterior. A larger amethyst is set where two points meet and a curve of smaller amethysts to the negative space between created by the design. These eight sections have been hinged together so that this bracelet is flexible and a gold rope wraps around the base of the larger amethyst hiding the articulation from view.
This is a completely fabulous piece! It's heavy with a wonderful design, is very well crafted, and looks to have hardly been worn or used.
