c1880 Antique Victorian 12ct Rose & Yellow Gold GF BELT Bangle Bracelet by BATES & BACON


This Antique Victorian Bangle Bracelet has such stunning design & styling and is so much more impressive in person than in the pictures. It is styled on top somewhat like a belt which was common place in Victorian times. At the centre is a raised “loop” with Rose Gold detailing and further embellishments also of rose hue. It is a great contrast to the understated yellow hue of the bangle’s body which features a scrolling foliate design set upon a richly stippled background continuing around to the back, also where a cartouche is featured. Please enlarge the pictures for a close-up – the attention-to-detail is amazing.

The body of the bracelet has squared off edges and it is an elongated oval shape. The clasp is released by pressing in the tab. The clasp clicks closed securely and the hinge is in excellent working order. A safety chain is in place for additional security. 

It has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique jewellery. Its hue is a warm, Antique buttery yellow with the Rose Gold accents and is so much nicer than the pictures suggest.
