Antique Sterling Silver & Paste Bracelet
Antique Sterling & Paste Bracelet Circa. 1900 United Kingdom
A rare and exquisite bracelet! Hand-made with individually hand-set paste stones in a sterling cylinder Each faceted round paste stone is held in place by a tiny silver thin bezel at the rim. This kind of labor-intensive work is cost prohibitive in this era. Only would be done with diamonds, at a cost of thousands of dollars.
Three strands, 165 paste stones with a secure invisible clasp. The clasp is incrusted with paste stones. Total length is 7 inches. Only 1/4 inch in width. Amazingly light in weight: Only 3.7 g. Super comfortable to wear! Marked "sterling" on the side of the clasp (see photo)
In pristine original condition
