Edwardian Floral Carved Amethyst Panel Bracelet

Edwardian Floral Carved Amethyst Panel Bracelet

$2,150.00


Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1915

An incredible antique bracelet featuring seven panels of carved amethyst, six rectangular and a central, larger, oval. The carving is exceptional - depicting a near-decadent abundance of flowers, fruit, and leaves - and the style suggests it was done in China in the 19th century. Suitably festive for spring/Easter.

Upon the fall of the Qing dynasty in 1912 many items such as these amethyst panels made their way to Europe and America where they were incorporated into pieces of jewellery in the Western style, such as this bracelet.
