Antique French Onyx and Diamond Bracelet, circa 1860
French and bearing old French hallmarks, this bracelet of fancy cut onyx and 125 old rose cut diamonds in a twist like motif is to be worn right at the wrist. It has an internal spring so that it opens easily and fits just about any wrist size. This early antique piece is hand made in silver - which is typical of jewelry made at this time. It is unusual, survives in wonderful condition and easy to put on and wear. We conservatively estimate it to be mid-nineteenth century, but could have been made at an earlier time.
