You know my feelings about Art Deco bracelets. You also know my feelings about J.E. Caldwell. Therefore, we should all be excited after looking at the title of this post.
Made in 1930 by J.E. Caldwell and Co, this bracelet is set with three oval-shaped cabochon emeralds, each within a circular-cut diamond plaque. The emeralds alternate with openwork circular and baguette-cut diamond panels, mounted in platinum. Isn’t it glorious? The roundness of the cabochon emeralds is the perfect contrast with the geometric brightness of the diamond patterns.
