Innocent white...

Antique bangle with pearls in red gold, around 1890

"The color combination of the innocent white of the pearl with the fiery luster of the gold is extremely pleasing to the eye. Bracelets, brooches, earrings and rings are preferably made in this way, and usually the composition and grouping of several pearls of the same color but different size sets the tone for the main basis of the stylish design of such jewelry." This excerpt from an article about pearl jewelry, which appeared in September 1888 in the ladies' journal Bazar, describes excellently the fashion, from which also the present bangle originated: For in the last years of the 19th century bangles with pearls were particularly popular. In the case of our bracelet from Imperial Germany, eleven fine pearls with their soft, bright luster visually enrich the bracelet, which is made of fine rods. The pearls are set in 14-karat red gold, typical of the period. We received the antique arm jewelry of the years around 1890 from Hanover.
