Saying this is a diamond bracelet doesn’t do it justice. This Art Deco diamond and ruby bracelet, my friends, is diamond-encrusted.
This gorgeous thing was made by Lacloche in the 1920’s. The tapered bangle with openwork diamond-set scale patterns is enhanced by calibré-cut ruby lines, to the stylized acorn swiveling terminals. It is signed Lacloche.
I imagine it doesn’t fit everyone, since it certainty doesn’t look like it can be sized. Fingers crossed that it’s for a small wrist – in case I’m ever in a room with it, I like to think it would fit me.
