Pair of Gold-Banded Gutta-Percha Bangle Bracelets
This pair of antique bangle bracelets, in rich dark gutta-percha with contrasting stripes of gold, are strikingly contemporary looking. Composed of natural Malaysian tree resin and formed in molds, polished gutta-percha jewels took many forms in the late 1800s. Light, smooth, and durable, these hinged bangles with their double bands of gleaming gold slip easily onto the wrist as an original and ultra-modern looking accessory. Sold exclusively as a matching set.
