Get ready to jump out of your seat---this drool-worthy hinge cuff bracelet will jolt you into a state of shock! This is seriously THE #1 most extravagant and unique piece of jewelry I have ever come across in my life to date.

Circa 1940s (could be earlier!), this super-thick rich brassy gold-tone cuff is intricately wrought and detailed, depicting two small serpent-like dragons (front) and four larger dragons (back) on a beautiful latticework frame.

The front is encrusted with two deep green oval jade stones and six small coral stones. The back features two larger deep green rectangular jade stones and four small coral stones. All the stones are lustrous in color, in great condition, and securely set and pronged.

If this weren't already enough, the front of the bracelet showcases a huge Netsuke hand carved (pre-ban!) natural ivory Chinese dragon. Amazing attention to detail and precision! His feet are tipped in brassy gold, and he appears to be "enslaved", with a little chain connected from his wrist to a ring in his mouth.

Inside of the bracelet features a huge picture frame box directly behind the dragon (see 5th picture). The two back panels of the bracelet open outwards, fastening with a high-end lock pin closure.

Truly an amazing KILLER piece of jewelry! A great conversation starter, you'll have people wherever you go admiring this rare and exotic beauty.



Inner circumference: 7" (flat)
Outer circumference: 9 1/2" (flat)
Widest point (excluding center Netsuke dragon): 2" (flat)
Netsuke dragon height: 2 1/4" (flat)
Netsuke dragon width: 1 1/8" (flat)

Exhibits one professional repair in the back, towards the right of the picture frame box (see 5th picture). From the back, it appears that the material has be re-welded. Completely, 100% non-noticeable from the front and does in no way detract from the overall quality and condition of the piece. The gold plating has worn off on the edge of one of the back panels; very minute and non-noticeable.

All in all, this piece is in INCREDIBLE condition! Considering its intricacy, raised carvings, and gemstones, it's a miracle that it's in such wonderful shape. Please let me know if you have any questions.
