Vintage Sterling Silver Red Carnelian Bracelet, Multi Chain, Niello, Turkish, Middle Eastern, Slide Out Clasp, Breathtaking! #c413
I'm pleased to offer this fabulous vintage sterling silver and carnelian multi-chain bracelet! 

This gorgeous bracelet is designed in the Byzantine style and is of Middle-Eastern origin, most likely Turkish. The bracelet is comprised of fine sterling silver. It features six strands of silver foxtail chains that are held together by six silver, niello adorned stations. (Niello is black material made of sulphur, copper, silver and lead that is inlaid into etched silver designs and fired.) The center of the bracelet holds a stunning large, oval, red carnelian focal stone. The stone is bezel set and accented around its entire circumference by a silver frame with petals. The bracelet closes with a slide out clasp that is an integral part of the two end stations. The foxtail chains give this piece such a supple and luxurious feel and they are the perfect complement to the rich red carnelian stone. It's a breathtakingly beautiful piece!

The bracelet measures about 6 7/8 inches long, 20mm wide (at its widest point) and weighs 22.7 grams. It is hallmarked "925" on one of the end stations and has an undecipherable mark on the back of the center stone. The carnelian stone is approximately 20mm long and 15mm wide.

The rich patina of the silver combined with the deep red of the carnelian stone in this bracelet is just superb!s It's a marvelous piece to add to a vintage silver jewelry collection and would make a fine gift. The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition with a rich patina to the silver from age. It's a fabulous vintage find!
