This Fabulous French gold, diamond buckle bracelet is from the Retro (ca1940) era. This wide, 3 dimensional looking bracelet is designed to look like a buckle and is made of 18kt yellow gold. The "strap" of the buckle is portrayed by a wide honeycomb mesh band which carries around the entire length and clasps in the front. The pointed end of the strap is lined with fifteen .03 carat diamonds and the buckle is lined with twelve .05 carat diamonds and nine .02-.03 diamonds on the clasp with a total weight of approximately 1.25 carats. The adjustable gold bracelet can easily be worn at 3 different lengths.(from 6 ¾ -7 ¼). The clasp is very easy to work with and hidden within the diamond buckle. There is an unusual levered pin for added safety. On the inside of the clasp is several hallmarks including the most easily recognized and commonly seen French mark which is the eagle’s head, in use since 1838, indicating 18 karat gold. The piece weighs 68.2 dwt and is 9 inches long by 1 1/8 inches wide. The condition is pristine and must be seen to be appreciated.
