Bangles set with quality gemstones from the colonies of the British Empire, like the present particularly beautiful specimen, were a great fashion in England at the turn of the 20th century. The powerful colonial empire of Great Britain had outstanding gemstone mines around the globe, whose precious minerals were processed in London and the other cities of the Empire into jewels that adorned the ladies and gentlemen of the upper social classes. This is also the case in this bangle from the years before the turn of the last century, in which hand-cut rubies and diamonds are set. The precious stones have been set like stars. They are in so-called "Gypsy" settings, which were very popular in the Victorian era: In this technique, the stones are set into the precious metal so that the tablets of the stones are on a level with the gold surface. This also makes them particularly comfortable to wear, as nothing can get caught in ribbons or fabric. Often the setting, as here with the diamonds, was still surrounded with star-shaped engravings. Also speaks for the quality of the bracelet that the whole bracelet was forged from gold, which makes it shine particularly warm. The piece of jewellery is very well preserved and also still has the original safety chain, which prevents the ring once opened could accidentally slide off the arm. A find from London that is now waiting for a new wearer.
