Bracelet Type: Hinged Bangle Bracelet Closure/Clasp Type: Push-in Clasp with a Safety Wire Link Type: Chased Gold Band Notable Features: This bracelet was handmade during the Art Deco era. A fascinating piece of history, this bangle would have been gifted as a wedding bracelet and is made out of 14k yellow gold adorned with chased foliate and swirl designs. Wedding bracelets were especially popular during the 19th and 20th centuries with the reemergence of Renaissance jewelry styles but had been in use centuries earlier. Wedding bracelets are currently enjoying renewed popularity as the vintage theme has re-emerged in modern weddings. Traditionally wedding bracelets were used in place of an engagement and wedding ring and were engraved with the initials of the wearer. Fortunately, this bangle is not engraved and can be personalized with your initials. This 14k yellow gold bracelet was created using the repousse technique, which consists of hand-hammering precious metal into the desired shape. Due to the use of this technique this wedding bangle is hollow, adding a light and airy feel to this gorgeous item. The yellow gold of this bracelet has been hand chased with elegant, curling foliate patterns and swirl motifs, with some lines having been engraved more deeply than the others. The multiple angles created in the metal using the chasing technique allow the bracelet to catch and reflect light, adding to the luminous nature of this bracelet. To keep the bracelet secure when worn, it has a push-in clasp as well as a safety wire for added security. This bracelet has a wearable length of 6.5" which means it hangs ever so slightly loose on the wrist, allowing it to move naturally and play with the light. Whether you're a collector of antique jewelry, or a bride looking for "something old," this bracelet would make an excellent addition to a jewelry collection. Don't miss your chance to preserve this unique piece of history. Damage: Age appropriate wear. *This listing is for the item only. All display boxes and/or photography props do not come with your purchase.* The History The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1935. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Wedding bracelets have a long history stretching back centuries and were especially popular in 19th century Europe as Victorians looked back to the Middle Ages and Renaissance for influence in their art and jewelry. Historically, a groom would give his bride a beautifully engraved bracelet on their wedding day, but occasionally they would also be gifted in sets—one given upon engagement, and the other on the day of the wedding. Alternately these sets would come as two different sized bracelets, a larger one for the groom and the smaller for the bride. During the Victorian and Art Nouveau eras, these bracelets were also referred to as “handcuff bracelets” and were a symbol of matrimonial commitment, usually used in place of an engagement or wedding ring. Repoussé began as an ancient metalworking technique dating as far back as the 3rd century BC, involving malleable metal that was hammered onto the reverse side to create an image on the front. Examples are found all over the world; Greece, Egypt, and even the Hopewell periods in the American southeast. Reverse side hammering was also used to add detail to the front, creating intricate patterns using grooves, indentations, and channeling. The piece was then carefully polished to create a hollow, eye-catching treasure. Chasing is a metalworking technique that uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns onto a metal surface. This process creates a design that is sunk into the front of the surface using indentations, grooves, and channels. Chasing is thousands of years old and was a very difficult and time-consuming technique that is still used by metalsmiths today.
