19th Century Diamond Link Bracelet

Important 19th century old mine cut diamond bracelet. Over 150 elongated old mine cut diamonds are set in a  silver topped gold setting. The contemporary feel of this bracelet along with its fine materials and craftsmanship dating to the 1850’s combine to make this bracelet so special. English in origin. 

Old mine cut diamonds were cut for gas and candle light and omit a darker romantic sparkle. While the precision faceting of modern stone’s main objective is to refract as much white light as possible.  A 19th century diamond was cut to preserve as much weight as possible and often follow the same shape as the rough diamond crystal as it was pulled from the ground.

Measures 7.50" in length and .75" at the widest point. Diamond push clasp with safety chain.
