Splendid gold bangle with citrine & diamond roses, 1930s

In the 1930s, a new love of the past awoke in the midst of a world marked by advanced technology and rapid change. The return to the "good old days" of Biedermeier and the 19th century can also be found in the field of jewellery, where after the cool elegance of Art Deco, the splendour of the 19th century is suddenly encountered again, with its almost exuberant decoration, large coloured stones and rich gold. The bracelet here is a fine example of this. The large cross-cut citrine in its millegriffes setting is shown amidst a detailed gold frame. Small fleur-de-lys and gold beads and floral elements reminiscent of granulations are borrowed from the taste of the 1880s, which also favored finely detailed, openwork framing. We also see a reference to our own time: next to the citrine, three elements each are set off to the side in platinum and set with diamond roses. Their cool, graphic form stems from Art Deco, which was highly modern at the time of the bangle's creation, but blends naturally and unexpectedly harmoniously with the historical quotations. At the side, the design runs to a slender, simple gold hoop, which offers a successful balance to the elaborate decorative piece of the bangle. Two safety yokes hold the snap closure securely so that the bangle can be worn without worry.
