20k vintage Straits Chinese gold bangle set with rose cut diamonds, weighing approximately 4ctw.
The bright, white rose cut diamonds are hand cleaved, cut from an earlier time, but the bangle was created at a later date, a ‘polished’ style like this most probably after the second war.
The charm of this bangle is its clean lines, the oval gold work is really its wide centrepiece that will span your wrist, the rest a non decorative gold rim.
This simplicity is very desirable when in rose cut diamond jewelry, letting the raw facets stand out. It works in this case because the smallest diamond is 3.5mm and the biggest 6mm, meaning you can wholly discern the rose cuts.
If you compare some antique rose cut diamond jewelry, many tend to be ‘old fashioned’, with a certain period jewelry look, and hence require a certain wardrobe. This bangle is not like that, can you tell?
Chic even with sweaters. Dreamy with a turtleneck and some pants, perfect with gloves ok I got to stop this… beauty binds imagination 😀
Will fit petite and medium size wrists.
