A lovely Art Nouveau bracelet with an amethyst center stone and three snake chains. This has a gold wash with that fabulous aged patina. The centerpiece has floral elements that make the bracelet feminine and unusual. It is possible that this is an Art Deco or transitional piece, but I have not been able to find another like it.
In excellent condition. There is a little plating loss and patina which is expected for a bracelet this age. The amethyst has some inclusions and a line that may be a crack on the inside of the stone (common in quartz type stones). It seems to be naturally present at the time of cutting and does not go through to the front or the back of the stone. The stone tests as amethyst with a Presidium gem tester and is approx 15mm x 11mm.
