What a Beautiful Bangle Bracelet of solid, quality English
construction! With a softer yellow gold hue, this pretty bangle bracelet features
a stylized floral & foliate design set within the plain bands, reaching
beyond clasp and hinge with a design I liken to the rising sun. The delicate diamond
cut detailing really makes the design stand out and catch the light
The back is plain & smooth. The hinge opens & closes
smoothly and the hook-like clasp clicks shut with a snap. There is absolutely, positively no way this
one will fall off! A safety chain is in
place for added security.
It has that lovely silky smooth feel usually only associated
with solid carat gold. The gold has a shiny, almost mirror-like finish.

Bangles with a metal core wear much better than bangles without
