Vintage Sterling Silver Poison Bracelet Garnet Scarab Secret Compartment
A fantastic sterling silver poison bracelet in a vintage Egyptian Revival Style. This c1970-80s cuff has a hidden compartment at the front with locking clasp. The scarab beetle has Garnet gemstones eyes and wonderful detail work. Our model has a size 6 3/4" wrist and it fits her perfectly with no movement. The bracelet is open at the back and can be opened or closed approximately 1/4" to slightly change the fit.
The garnets are faceted bezel set round stones and measure 4.5mm each for an approximate .86 total carat weight. The bracelet measures 1 1/2" in height at it's tallest point at the front with the cuff band measuring 1/2".
The sterling silver setting is shiny, bright and clean. We did only a quick polishing with a polishing cloth and it shined up beautifully. There is a great natural patina in between the detail work which we left to show the age of the piece and it also gives the sterling some depth. The bracelet is marked 925 for sterling silver on the back and has been safely tested to be so. It has a nice sturdy weight of 24 grams of silver.
