20k Antique Chinese Filigree Bracelet, Peranakan Jewellery

Antique Chinese gold bracelet set in 20k.

At 1cm wide, this is a delicate bracelet made up of small individually shaped links interlinked across the length of the bracelet.

In fact we know this is Straits Chinese jewellery from such exact links. The little gold baubles bear a striking resemblance to Etruscan jewellery, likewise seen in many other historical ethnic jewellery pieces. Modern jewellery art has reworked this ‘sun ray’ endlessly.

Nevertheless the joy in this piece is the intricate interlink of different elements. The gold baubles interlink with handcrafted round loops and diamond shaped Chinese links, the latter which show gentle carvings to get the gold to shine with a ‘twinkle’ effect.

The whole bracelet is handcrafted and its craftsmanship is pliable, you can feel it is luxe on your wrist. You can actually form a knot in the bracelet like it is a string, that’s how ‘soft’ the bracelet is crafted. You can only get this effect if the gold work is expertly formed. In this region we recognise this desirable quality when we say “the gold is so thinly sliced”.

The little gold ball tassels that drop from such bracelets are usually lost to us, but here you have it complete. Luck, love, and the bliss of both. They add a girlish sentimentality to movement.

With full Chinese hallmarks. These bracelets have been part of Peranakan heritage since forever – 19th century and surely earlier. Once on the minds of gentility, these bracelets have all but been forgotten. When an authentic era piece as this emerges, in complete whole and excellent keep, we remember again. This is the intimate role of ‘just a piece of jewellery’.
