Yellow gold bracelet set with four large cabuchon cut aquamarines. This bracelet still has the feeling of the 1950s due to the flat gold links, but the high cabuchon-cut aquamarines indicate that the bracelet must have been made later. The gemstones weigh approximately 6 carat each and have an intense color due to the high cut. The bracelet measures 18 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Crafted in 18 karat gold. € 3650, -

The brooch was manufactured in the 1950's and is a good illustration of the popularity of such flower brooches. Such brooches often came from Austria, because of the tradition of cutting gemstones, which was particularly skilled in Austria, also because some of the gemstones used were found in Austria itself. The most famous jewelery with cut gemstones was made in the Faberge workshops around 1900, but it is an art that was practiced a lot in Italy earlier in the 19th century, for example the famous cameos. This brooch is made in Germany and is set with an unusually many different gemstones.
