A gorgeous bangle and hinged bracelet set with coral buttons and beads, typical of the Victorian era.

The story behind the piece :
I am so fond of that specific type of Victorian button coral bangle hinged bracelets, that I have a collection offered for sale.
They rarely come in great condition and this is the first time I see a 3 rows bangle with such a rich flower-like design on top.

What is it made of :
- the original gilt metal bangle structure,
- the original safety chain,
- set with 2 rows of round coral beads at back, and 3 rows of coral beads in front through a wire and richly decorated with 9 buttons pined in a flower-like design on top.

Color : lovely medium pinkish salmon, very desirable color ; buttons have subtle shadings as they are natural coral but all match wonderfully.
Exact color of coral was very hard to capture, may seem pale on some monitors but is not, it is a medium pinkish salmon, rather like on last photo.
Photos taken outdoor both in sun and shadow, to appreciate the variation of coral.

Sizes : diameter of bracelet is 6 x 5 cm inside, and 6,5 x 6 cm outside. Fits a small to medium size wrist.
- back beads on wire : 3 mm
- front beads on wire : 3 to 6,7 mm
- buttons of flower-like design on top : from 5 mm to a big 9,8mm

Weight : 19,9 grams

Condition :
Structure,
- safe structure that holds the smaller beads through a wire all over the bangle,
- a wired pin structure star-shaped for the 9 centered buttons, dedicated to allow some movements to help from being damaged, just in case of a shock (see 3rd photo),
- slot clasp works well and is secure, closes nice and straight with its original safety chain,
- hinged mechanism works well too,
Gilt metal shows some discolorations in relation with age, but no sign of repair, the original soldering from the sided wires to the centered pin star structure is original.

Coral,
- highly polished, thus very shiny, the natural striations of coral is visible,
- very few variations in color, some subtle shadings but all match wonderfully and add to the interest of the piece,
- no white spot on coral, very few pits, dark spots and flaws,
- no missing or replaced coral pieces.
The buttons are perfectly polished with a high sheen, the 3 mm beads are typical of hand cut with slightly irregular shape, .

All these specifiations help authentification for natural undyed, untreated coral, and typical of the Victorian era.

Wear it : face up, very confortable to wear, easy to associate and very original. Fits a small to medium size wrist.
Such a unique coral bangle is rarely seen and you will be proud and happy to wear it, you want to touch it when you wear it !
Definitely a work of wearable art. The style allows to wear it with a lot of outfit.

Not only beautiful to see, but beautiful when worn, a rare piece you will love to wear, glad to show, keep for you forever or offer to someone you love ... if you are fond of coral, or unusual vintage jewelry, are you?
