"Antique" Vintage 9ct Gold MC Engraved ENGLISH Bangle Bracelet Wide Heavy 42g

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 beautifully.

 

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.

 

HISTORY & HALLMARKS

Era:                  c1960s (patent number 102.22.8 inside)

Trademark:      H.G. & S.

Maker:              Henry Griffiths & Sons known to be operating in the late 19th century into the 20th century

Material:          9ct gold with a metal core (assumed 1/5th as most are)

Gold Purity:     9ct gold

 

Being 1/5th gold/metal core means it is that this a solid bangle with a thick shell of 9 carat gold bonded to a jeweller’s alloy or metal core.  The 1/5 refers to the amount of gold in the construction - the gold is 4 times thicker when compared to standard rolled gold.

 

Bangles with a metal core wear much better than bangles without one as they are easily dented and crushed.  The metal core provides durability and strength to their construction.  They were known to come with a warranty of 20 years and longer.

  

SIZING

Suitable:          small-medium/average wrists - circumference of 17.4cm

Diameters:        6cm & 5.02cm or 2.37” & 2”

OVERALL

Better-than-Excellent Vintage condition! There is no damage, dents or wear to note just a little typical surface scratching evident on all gold jewellery that has been worn.
