Vintage 1980s Rectangular Hinged Bangle Bracelet with Emeralds in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A very cool, vintage, hinged bangle bracelet, modeled in 14k yellow and white gold, with a unique, soft, rectangular profile. This shapely bangle's yellow gold face is decorated with a series of nine white gold squares— each of these square seats holds a vibrant, faceted, bead-set emerald, and each is finished with fine milgrain edges. This bangle is part of the retro, 1980s-does-1940s design movement. We love it for its unusual shape, simple elegance, and color-blocking aesthetic. It lends interesting dimension to a stack of bracelets, and it is an easy-going piece, on its own. This bangle was made in Hungary, and it is fully hallmarked. Closure is a hidden tension clasp with a safety catch. Hinge and clasp are tight and functioning admirably.
Bracelet width measures approx 4.9 mm; interior diameter is approx 2.4"; this fits a 6 1/4 - 6 3/4" wrist with plenty of flattering play; emeralds (9) measure approx 2.7 mm; emerald CTW is approx .65 carats.
