English 15K Gold and Diamond Bangle Bracelet
This 15K gold and diamond bangle bracelet dates from the Victorian period. The hinged 15K gold form with bloomed surface centers a box-set old mine-cut diamond, and is accented across the top with applied bead and wirework motifs. Light and gleaming, this streamlined antique bangle is equally modern and chic.
