Studded Victorian Gold Bangle

Striking Victorian gold bangle in 18k bloomed gold with rose gold accents. Engraved A.W. Clayes Circa 1850/60

By the 1850s bracelets had become an indispensable accessory.  Up to seven or eight of differing design might be worn between the wrist and elbow on both arms. Alternatively they could be worn in pairs and even over gloves.

"Bloomed" refers to a technique where the piece would have been given an acid bath. Giving the piece an intense golden hue that is slightly matte in appearance.
Approximate 5.5" inner circumference makes this bracelet ideal for a smaller wrist. Double button clasp closure.
