Among our favorite qualities of Victorian jewelry is the way some pieces, although beautifully embellished, are subtle and simple at first glance. This lovely bangle, made in Chester, England in 1887, is exemplary! Beautiful beading and scrollwork adorn the rose gold and give it dynamic texture while a small strip of diamonds lays across the center like a pretty ribbon. The old mine cut diamonds sparkle softly, totaling a carat weight of about .24. They add the perfect pop of glitter to the bangle, whose patina and understated 15k rose tone makes it easy to wear everyday. During this bracelet's long life, two diamonds were replaced with modern cuts. It measures 6 3/4 around, fitting an average to smaller sized wrist.
