What a Beautiful Bangle Bracelet of solid, quality
English construction and complete with the original box of the jeweller it was purchased
from! With a buttery 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
HISTORY & HALLMARKS
Trademark: H.G. & S.
Maker: Henry Griffiths & Sons known
to be operating in the late 19th century into the 20th
Material: 9ct gold with a metal core (assumed
1/5th as they generally are)
Gold Purity: 9 carat 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 means 1/5th
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.
