Per our estimate, this was a platinum piece from around the turn of the century which later on (possibly 1950s) had a gold frame built around it to protect it. The platinum piece in the center is actually well kept and as a piece this bracelet looks stunning, so we dont see a need to remove the gold part. This bracelet is set with old mine cut diamonds and French cut natural sapphires as well.
The old mine cut diamonds weigh approximately 8.0 carats total; they are G to H color and VS to SI clarity. Two small diamonds were replaced with round brilliants which you cant notice with the naked eye. The French cut sapphires weigh approximately 10.0 carats total, they are rich blue color, clean and look natural untreated. The platinum bracelet part is hand decorated and the 14K gold outer part is very smooth plus it goes great with this piece.This bracelet measures approximately 16cm (6.3 inches) long by 15mm wide and it weighs 37 grams total.
