An Etruscan Revival Yellow Gold Bangle
An Etruscan Revival yellow gold hinged bangle with wirework and granulated decoration to the front, 2.3cm wide, hallmarked 15ct gold, Birmingham, 1880, gross weight 36.2 grams, accompanied by original fitted case.
A handsome Etruscan revival bangle. During the mid to late Victorian era, new archaeological discoveries brought a renewed interest in the jewellery styles of Ancient civilizations, particularly the ancient Etruscan civilization. This bangle is crafted in the Etruscan style and features a wide gold band decorated with fine wirework and granulation, both staple techniques of ancient Etruscan jewellery. The bangle features a single hinge, giving it a bold and sophisticated look on the wrist. This piece would look stunning paired with an evening gown.
