Rock Crystal and Lapis Lazuli Beaded Link Bracelet


Set with nearly six carats of diamonds, this platinum and rock crystal link bracelet is highlighted by beads of lapis lazuli and onyx. Designed as alternating open squares of carved rock crystal and diamond-set platinum, the articulated link bracelet, joined by arched diamond bars, is accented by lapis lazuli cylinder beads with onyx sphere bead terminals. A strong design combining the astonishing transparency of carved rock crystal, the complex visual texture of lapis, and the brilliance of diamonds, this bold bracelet is a Modernist classic.

Artists since the ancient Egyptians have been fascinated by rock crystal. Jeweled, decorative objects from the Fatimid, Medieval European, and Mughal worlds provided inspiration for the feats of rock crystal carving of the late 19th and 20th century jewelers, such as Fabergé and Boucheron Paris.
