Victorian era circa 1900 gold slide bracelet
This is a wonderful example of a Victorian slide bracelet. The slides themselves all date to around 1900 and are of varying gold content. Most are 14 karat, two are 18 karat and two are 10 karat. The stones are an assortment of tiny turquoise beads, natural seed pearls, diamonds, garnets and paste. The bracelet itself was likely assembled in the 1930s when slide chains fell out of fashion. This would have been a contemporary way of repurposing the highly detailed and collectible slides.
