Vintage Ruby Diamond & Gold Bangle in Historic Shape, 1970s
The forms of British jewellery of the Victorian era remained popular in Britain long after the death of the sovereign, indeed, to this day. No matter what fashions came and went, the British jewellery industry has been able to enjoy a reliable, devoted public in all decades since the beginning of the 20th century, who to this day demand jewellery in the familiar forms that are considered good and right. The elegant bangle here is such a piece of jewellery, designed in the forms of the years around 1900 and yet probably created in the 1970s. Forged from high karat gold, the bangle presents a beautiful loop pattern of silver, set with diamonds and rubies. The technique and choice of materials is quite traditional; the quality of the workmanship also corresponds to jewellery from the turn of the century. The gemstones used probably originate from India, at that time still part of the Empire, as they did around 1900. Only the somewhat more powerful strength of the material and its hallmarking reveal that this is a piece that was created in later times. As a testament to the long life of Belle Époque forms, compelling in their beauty, the bangle has pleased us well. Moreover, its clear, compact form makes it suitable for wearing on many occasions.
