22k Antique Diamond Bangle Bracelet, Old European Cut Diamonds

Details on GemGardener.com.

Antique Chinese diamond bangle set in 22k, with over 4ctw of Old European Cut diamonds.

This bangle has such a modern sleekness, that its age is often overlooked. Yet it is probably handcrafted in the ’30s, with small but definite signs of an earlier era’s craftsmanship.

Such details are hidden to the untrained eye, but we have examined many pieces to sense techniques not usual to our time. Not just from the use of Old European Cut diamonds but rather, on a detail as small as the contour of the bangle.

This bangle has a particular rise in the cuff, and a rather rigid clasp that does not require much exertion to open-close. Such fine details are actually very useful to distinguish between authentic and reproduction pieces.

The diamonds are fiery, and it is because of such fire that a simple, prim design as such can be graceful. By today’s standards, this swivel ‘S’ design is hardly creative. However, what is uncommon is its use of fairly big diamonds on a very slender cuff. The bangle looks almost to disregard form and balance, but that’s what makes it part of the ‘Peranakan whim’.

The swivel ‘S’ centrepiece extends to cover most of the wrist (a very nice touch!), with an almost lackadaisical cuff at the back. We call this look ‘chinoiserie’ – the bangle wears ‘loose’ however fitting it cleaves to the wrist. Another small detail we now know to buzz about 🙂

The inspiration was probably to have the wearer show off her diamonds with as little gold in the way as possible. This bangle is sleek from its nondescript design, with only fire from the diamonds and seemingly nothing else.
