14K Gold Cannetille Etruscan Revival Bracelet
A beautiful 14KT yellow gold bracelet from the Etruscan Revival period, circa 1880. The bracelet is exquisitely hand-made and is a fine example of Cannetille gold work, which is similar to filigree work with fine gold wires that curl around thinly hammered sheets. Cannetille gold work was inspired by embroidery and nature. The repeating curling designs on each segment of the bracelet are harmonious and elegant. The diamond shape of the segment has an oval decoration, framed with gold wire-work, and inside this, there is a symmetrical curling design. Each segment measures 1 inch and the bracelet, made up of six segments, is approximately 7 inches. Each segment is hollow, and connected through thick gold links decorated with gold beads. The bracelet feels great when worn, and has a safety chain so that it doesn't fall off. The bracelet weighs a total of 18 grams and is in perfect condition. This bracelet displays the aesthetic tastes of the era- of nostalgia and romance.
