Double Gold and Diamond Rope Bracelet
Dating from the 1950s, this double-strand gold rope bracelet is highlighted by single and round mixed-cut diamonds, set in platinum. Designed as a two-stranded twisted rope with intricate knotted links, the tapering bracelet is highlighted by alternating perpendicular diamond arches. Richly-textured and softly flexible, this is exceptional French gold and diamond bracelet drapes like sparkling gold rope on the wrist.
