Oh, my dears. You’re in for a treat this Friday morning.
Remember when I asked Lang Antiques to send me bigger pictures of an amazing opal and diamond necklace they were selling and they rocked my world by sending me these? They’ve done it again.
This piece is an Edwardian antique emerald and diamond bracelet, made between 1910 and 1920. The platinum bracelet is 3/4 of an inch wide and glows with a row of European-cut diamonds that leads to a 2.75 carat round cabochon emerald. The bracelet is further embellished by several smaller calibre-cut emeralds, openwork detail, and hand engraving.
What really makes this exceptional in my book – besides the masterful use of the occasional bright emeralds – is the incredible openwork and the texture that the millegraining creates around the negative space. To say it’s a feast for the eyes is to flirt with understatement.
Just look at that detail. What do you think? Do you love this antique emerald and diamond bracelet as much as I do?
It’s 7 inches long, which means it would fit me perfectly. Just FYI.
This antique emerald and diamond bracelet is currently for sale at Lang Antiques. All images and info in this post are thanks to Lang – specifically, thanks to the fabulous Lisa and gifted photographer Cole.
