This genuine Victorian bangle features natural Turquoise gemstones and lustrous split Pearls, teamed with rich, warm 9ct Rose Gold. It features an ornate interwoven design with typical Victorian beaded edge for an elegant and feminine look.
This bangle certainly has a charm to it! We love the way the Turquoise gemstones vary from bright duck egg blue to tealy-green tones, so each gem is completely unique. The natural freshwater Pearls are also unique, and range from creamy, white to more silvery hues.
Would make a unique & thoughtful gift for any history lover of jewelry enthusiast.

The bangle is in lovely, ready to wear antique condition. The hinge and clasp are in good working order and comes complete with original safety chain so you can rest assured your bangle is safe whilst being worn. As with most antique items there are some signs of wear commensurate with age. There is one ding to the back of the bangle which you can see in the photographs, but this is not visible when worn and the bangle is structurally sound. Some Pearls have excellent nacre cover and some have a romantic aged look. One tiny Turquoise at the end is missing and it has been difficult to source another one that size.
Thanks for looking!!

Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
