There are a lot of boring animal-shaped bangles and cuffs out there. This is not one of them.
Fabulous, yes?This hinged bangle is designed as pavé-set diamond hoops alternating with lines of emerald beads. Opposite the hinge, the bangle culminates in two stylized dolphin head terminals, each holding a cabochon emerald in its mouth.I wonder what the inspiration for this “chimera” bangle was. Any ideas, Daughter of Smoke and Bone fans?This bracelet was listed in Christie’s November 2012 Magnificent Jewels sale. All images and info are thanks to Christie’s.
