Glowing red ribbon

Wonderful antique bracelet with bohemian garnets, around 1860

Made entirely of fine, sparkling red garnets, this 1860s bracelet. The piece of jewellery shows the fiery gemstones on 32 serrated links and strings them together to form an impressive overall picture. The graphic and modern design is rare and yet at the same time typical of the time: similar patterns were also found as appliqués on dresses in the 1860s. The stones used are Bohemian rose-cut garnets, which are presented here to great effect. In total, more than 1400 finely cut garnets are set in so-called garnet gold, an alloy with a light gold content that was invented specifically for garnet processing. This material, which is no longer processed today, but which has a fineness of between 4 and 6 carats, is now a distinctive feature of original, antique garnet jewellery, alongside the base tombac. The bracelet, with its unusual design language and very beautiful Bohemian garnets, is well preserved and still effective to wear today. A secure box lock and safety chain prevent it from being lost - and so it can be worn without worry. The about 3.5 cm wide bracelet found its way to us here in Berlin.
