A fabulous and rare late 1920s German Art Deco bracelet, with maker’s mark (just can’t quite read properly), which I assume because of the quality was made in Pforzheim in Germany. It is stamped with “835” a typical silver stamp in Germany in that era. The combination of super sparkly, large blue spinels with the gold wash is just so beautiful. It very much reminds me of the work of Karl Karst.

These spinels are excellent stones, beautifully-faceted with no wear and each being approx 6 carats or more. That makes at least 24 carats in the bracelet in total. The panels with the millegrain set stones are oval and have a large ball in each of the four corners. The larger, rectangular open work panels seem to show a sycamore leaf, a cluster of berries along with a lovely corner motif. This is a statement bracelet which feels WOW when you wear it. I hope you can see in the images how fabulous it is. That silver gilt against the startling blue of the spinels is such a joy.

She looks amazing on the wrist, measures approx 18cm (a touch over 7 inches) in length and the width is approx 2cm. In excellent condition-stones are wonderful and even the fixed safety clasp is present and correct. Some patina so, inevitably, would polish further. I would suggest a gold jewellery polishing cloth so that you are sympathetic to the lovely gold gilt present here.

I will post in a bracelet box to protect her well. Boxes in the images are for display only. Complimentary Express Tracked and Signed post is included. Thank you.
