The Jeweled Crescent
Antique Art Nouveau Triple Opal Bracelet with Leaves and Flowers in 9k Yellow Gold
This exquisite piece is not only an example of lovely opals but of creative craftsmanship during the period. The front of the bracelet features three oval bezel set opals. They are all crystal opals with no backing (no triplet or doublet). They have bluish/greenish base colors. The two smaller opals give off great green pinfire, while the center is more subdued and gives off blue/purple and green. They are each framed with floral and leaf motif frames. The tapering links also feature floral and leaf motifs with three dimensional figures. The bracelet closes with a hidden box clasp and has a safety chain. Please note that this piece is a smaller than average size. The internal circumference is 6.5". The front of the bracelet, in height, measures just over 3/4". The bracelet is crafted in 9k gold (stamped) and weighs 13.59g.
