Bracelet Type: Hinged Bangle Bracelet Closure/Clasp Type: Push-in Clasp with Hinge Link Type: Rounded and Polished Gold Filled over Base Metal Notable Features: This bracelet was handmade during the Art Nouveau era. Composed of 14k yellow gold filled over base metal, the bracelet features a beautifully chased design of curling vines. The style of this bracelet suggests it would have been used as a wedding or engagement bracelet, a style of bracelet which rose to popularity during the Victorian era. This era saw a revival of Renaissance influences in art and jewelry, and subsequent eras continued the tradition of using these bracelets in place of engagement and wedding rings. The bracelet was created using repousse metalworking techniques to hand-hammer yellow gold filled over base metal into the round shape of the bangle, creating a sturdy, hollow band perfect for chasing. The front of the band has been chased by hand with an elegant design of curling vine accents and would have been very fashionable during the Art Nouveau era, which favored jewelry that reflected the beauty of nature. Completing the bracelet is a hinge and push-in clasp for comfortable and secure wear. A gorgeous example of traditional Art Nouveau wedding jewelry, this bracelet would make a valuable addition to any antique jewelry collection, as well as an excellent gift for a bride in search of "something old." Don't miss your chance to preserve this piece of history. Damage: Age appropriate wear. The push-in clasp comes open when pulled; however, the bracelet is secure when worn and, if desired, your local jeweler can reinforce the clasp for more secure 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 Nouveau era, 1890-1910, was also called "La Belle Epoque" in French, which translates to "A Beautiful Time.” This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period. This era focused on women and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large. Enamel was a common material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry. 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.
