Spring sparkle

Antique Bangle With Emeralds & Diamonds In Pink Gold, Around 1890

"Especially beautiful are emeralds with diamonds, provided that the stones are beautiful in color and cut. This combination has an immensely fresh and graceful effect" - this was already known in 1894 by the influential fashion journal "Bazar". And this bangle does indeed have a spring-like freshness. Two emeralds shine in an intense green, the diamonds sparkle in the most beautiful white. The bangle is designed as a sophisticated combination of two bands that curves around the arm. One band is richly set with gemstones. Its face is made of silver to give the diamonds a cool, white glowing frame. Both ends of the band each bear an emerald in a wreath of sparkling diamonds. A second band is set in the center between the diamond rounds. It is made of gold and carries a single diamond in the center. If you turn the hoop, you can follow both bands as they intertwine in a sophisticated way on the underside of the jewelry. The hoop was created in the years around 1890. The fact that its face is made of silver gives a clue to this; in later times, platinum would have been used. The cut of the diamonds also points to the last years of the 19th century. Finally, a hallmark on the catch of the clasp proves that the bangle was imported to Austria before 1902. It bears the import mark of the KuK assay office Linz. In later times, the bangle was brought to the Bavarian Vogtland, where it was part of the jewelry collection of the porcelain manufacturer Hutschenreuther. We have had an independent appraisal done on the bangle which has confirmed the quality of the gemstones. It is included with the piece.
