Vintage Ruby & Brilliant White Gold Bracelet, Italy 2000s

Some jewellery motifs have accompanied jewellery history for thousands of years; bracelets and rings with snake motifs, for example, are already known from antiquity. Other motifs, however, are more recent developments, but due to their recognizable and memorable form, they have also long since secured their place in the history of jewellery. This bracelet, made of high-carat white gold, brilliant cut diamonds and rubies, presents itself as a series of eyelets and bars. It is not difficult to recognize here a row of snaffles, the mouthpiece of the bridle of horses. The French fashion and accessories company Hermès in particular has made this motif famous on scarves and numerous pieces of jewellery, as the company comes from a tradition of leather and saddle making. Here we see that the motif, slightly abstracted, has also been gratefully taken up in other countries. The bracelet in question here comes from Italy. The bracelet is forged from high-carat white gold and contains a total of 3.00 carats of brilliant cut diamonds and 4.25 carats of rubies. It is divided into a series of three elements that adapt the motif of the bridle. The rubies mark the middle of each element, creating a beautiful rhythm in the design. The bracelet, which fits softly around the wrist thanks to the many joints in the links, is in first-class condition and was probably made in Italy at the beginning of the 2000s.
