2.25ct. tw. handmade sapphire & diamond bracelet, 32.7gr., 18kt. $4,550.00 CAD. 241-00036

Handmade bracelets are not something we encounter very often but they are always a pleasure to receive! This artistic statement piece features hand-carved swirling ribbons of solid yellow gold repeated along its 7 1/2 inch length. The sapphires and diamonds in this bracelet are actually the connection joints that the bracelet flexes with. The hefty white gold settings have thick posts extending from their sides that have been riveted to the yellow gold links. The five oval sapphires are of a bright royal blue and equal approximately 2.00 carats together. The 0.25 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds are staggered between them and set on the button that releases the clasp. All told the bracelet weighs in at 32.7 grams, all the more impressive when you consider it’s made from premium quality 18 karat gold.

1960s Marvel diamond cocktail watch, 4.00ct. total weight SI-H, 31.4gr. 14kt. $5,600.00 CAD. e14534

Let’s face it, do you really need to know what time it is when you’re wearing a watch like this? The is the kind of accessory timepiece a glamorous Hollywood celebrity like Marilyn Monroe would have worn in the 1960s. It may technically be a watch, but that is simply an excuse because really it is a fabulous diamond bracelet. There are 134 hand set diamonds in this magnificent creation. Multiple sizes of round diamonds, tapered baguette, and a marquise cut centerpiece contribute to a total estimated weight of 4.00 carats. The diamonds are of brilliant SI-H quality and sparkle with the slightest movement. It was crafted from over 30 grams (net weight) of bright white 14 karat gold. The hinged links will conform to a feminine wrist of up to 6 1/2 inches circumference, extra length could be added to the diamond clasp if needed. In the most functional and practical sense, this is a pretty crappy watch. The spring loaded cover always casts a large shadow over the small silver dial and the thick faceted edge curved crystal distorts the optics adding extra challenge when trying to see what time it is. But who really cares, this is a marvelous diamond bracelet, that just so happens to serve a second function as a watch Despite the diamond bracelet limitations, the mechanical AS 1677 movement housed within is of a relatively high specification. The fully jewelled, hand-wind mechanism is shock protected and will run close to two days when fully wound. The beauty of these tiny movements (15mm x 13mm) is they can be left unattended for months or even years. When you decide you’d like the sparkle for the night, simply wind it up, set the time, and away you go. No battery to fail or leak if stored for an extended period. This watch is in remarkable condition. There is no wear of any kind in any of the link joints. The diamond set clasp is equipped with 2 length settings and equipped with a safety chain for added security. Working great and keeping good time (if you even care). We are pleased to provide the new owner with a complimentary 1-year mechanical warranty. The estate price for this beautiful diamond bracelet/watch is $5,600.00 CAD. Stock #e14534

18kt. Italian made hollow rope bracelet 21.7gr. 11.5mm wide 9″ $1,680.00 CAD. e12428

Probably the largest hollow rope link we’ve ever had in our estate department, measuring an impressive 11.5mm wide. Despite its size, the chain is in surprisingly good shape, showing only the most minor signs of the life that it has lived. Manufactured using heavy gauge hollow square section tubing is not surprising when you consider it has been made from extra warm 18 karat yellow gold. Its 21.7 gram weight is a testament to its quality despite the hollow construction but what else do you expect from Italian chain! The 9 inch length makes that bracelet almost universal as we can shorten it as needed to fit any wrist. It’s a fun piece that makes a great sound as the links jostle about while being worn. Estate price $1,680.00 CAD. Stock #e12428.

36 diamond tennis bracelet 2.60ct. tw. VS-H, 19.9gr. 14kt. 7 1/2″. $4,550.00 CAD. 171-00059

When shopping for a tennis bracelet one of the best tips we can offer is to turn it over and look at how it’s built. The best tennis bracelets will have very limited movement between their links, reducing the points of potential wear. Then you want to look at the thickness of the rivets that hold the links together, they should be a significant gauge as their thickness dictates the lifespan of the bracelet. If they start out thin you can count on one hand how many years of daily wear you’ll get out of the piece. Next, check the metal thickness of the rest of the link body. Almost all tennis bracelets are going to be hollowed out to some degree for comfort and affordability, but being worn on the wrist means they will be pressed against hard surfaces and accidentally smacked against things. Holes on the underside of the diamond settings allow for ease of cleaning. If they are too hollow or delicate they’ll easily be crushed and dented and potentially be too hollow to repair effectively. If you want an in-person tutorial we’ll be pulling this bracelet out as a standard of excellence. Its underside checks all of these boxes ensuring it’s more than suitable for conscientious daily wear. Not that you’ll be tempted to turn it over when it faces up so beautifully! The highly stylized X and O pattern is gracefully executed and features pairs of well-cut top quality VS-H round brilliant cut diamonds. The 36 gems equal approximately 2.60 carats together and stand out brightly against the rich 14 karat yellow gold that carries them. The 7 1/2 inch long piece weighs in at an impressive 19.9 grams and is secured with a white gold plunger clasp and additional side safety. It’s in like-new condition and is accompanied by a 2009 Hake Jewellers appraisal stating a replacement value of $6,700.00 CAD at a time when gold cost just half of what it does today. Our estate price is $4,550.00 CAD. Stock #171-00059.


14kt. tri-colour retro hinged bangle bracelet 10.5mm wide 19.7gr. $1,440.00 CAD. e14187

Just as a few brush strokes can be instantly associated with a particular artist, a couple of key design elements can date a jewellery item to a specific period of time. The three diagonal Florentine finish stripes on the polished flat surface of this hollow bracelet, place its date of manufacture squarely in the 1980s. For those of us who remember the best decade ever, this bracelet will bring back memories of clothing with stripes, bold bright colours, padded shoulders and baggy pants with more pleats than an accordion. Ahhhh…. those were the days. This 6 3/4 inch hinged bangle bracelet looks practically unworn. It measures 10.5mm wide, tapering to 4.3mm. Even though it is of hollow construction, it still tips the scales at a substantial 19.7 grams. The highly polished surface remains in scratch and dent free condition. The hinge is super tight with no play. Both the plunger clasp and side safety snap shut with a secure, reassuring click. This future classic, retro, estate bracelet is priced at $1,440.00 CAD.

BIRKS 18kt. fancy link bracelet, 7 3/4″, 19.3gr. solid. $2,100.00 CAD. e13753

The simplest things can sometimes be the most striking, especially when they are made to the Birks standard. This decorative link bracelet combines trios of simple jump rings with elongated intertwining pairs that have been fused together. The concept is about as simple as it gets but it still manages to be striking by deviating from your classic mass-produced chain links. By using premium, solid 18 karat yellow gold wire to produce this bracelet it almost seems artisan made. The 7 3/4 inch bracelet steps up with its unique patented clasp with an integrated push-button release, to avoid accidental opening. The bracelet weighs in at 19.3 grams and is estate priced for $2,100.00 CAD. Stock #e13753.


Set of five 18kt. 3mm Chini Italy bangle bracelets 32gr. $2,800.00 CAD. e14059

The 69-year-old Italian jewellery house Chini Italy is known for its advanced jewellery manufacturing technology. But this set of five bangles would still be made with the same jewellery making techniques that have been popular since the Industrial Revolution. That is not to say the quintette is made to common standards. They are made from 32 grams of premium 18 karat yellow gold. Each measures 3mm wide by 0.75mm thick and each features a bright-cut XO pattern that flashes brightly against the matte, machine-finished background.  The bangles are sold together for maximum chiming at the estate price of $2,800.00 CAD.

4.60ct. SI2-I1-I trestle link tennis bracelet, 14 karat, 17.2 grams. $5,250.00 CAD. e14553

Is this a case of someone picking up a second career? Because this bracelet leans more to the skill set of an engineer than a goldsmith. It’s been built to the engineering standards of a trestle bridge except swapping steel beams for precious 14 karat yellow and white gold. The links are connected to each other with heavy gauge three-piece hinges, ensuring the joints will last as long as the trestle links themselves. Each link stands 5.3mm tall by 4.1mm wide with two alternating lengths that add an extra accent to the two-tone bracelet. With this kind of thoughtful design, it’s no surprise to find the bracelet set with 4.60 carats of well-matched SI2-I1-I round brilliant cut diamonds. All told the bracelet weighs in at an impressive 17.2 grams, a testament to its high quality. It measures seven inches long and is fastened with a carefully hidden plunger clasp with an additional safety lock. The bracelet is accompanied by a UGL appraisal that states the diamonds are SI1 clarity (we disagree) and a realistic replacement value of $7,000 from 2006. We feel a contemporary replacement value with new would be $7,500.00 and the estate price (though the bracelet is in like-new condition) is $5,250.00 CAD. Stock #e14553.

22kt. cubic zirconia bracelet, never worn, 6 1/2″, 6.4gr. India $630.00 CAD. e14069

Many cultures don’t recognize 10 karat or even 14 karat gold jewellery as gold due to their higher alloy contents; 10 karat is only 41.7% gold and 14 karat is 58.3% gold. India especially doesn’t waste time on lower karats, so it is very normal to see 22 karat (91.7% pure) pieces set with synthetic gemstones. Synthetics in North America are normally set into 10 karat and sometimes 14 karat gold, reserving natural gems for 18 karat. The cubic zirconia that have been hand set into this 22 karat bracelet are an unusual combination for our culture, but commonplace in India, where even the “affordable” jewellery doesn’t compromise on gold purity. The 6 1/2 inch long bracelet is fully articulated, allowing each link to bend across the wrist. The heavy stylized S-catch locks securely into the solid end caps of the 6.4 gram bracelet. Estate price $630.00 CAD. Stock #e14069.

14kt. rose gold Figaro link bracelet, 6.7mm wide, 8 1/2″ long, 19.6gr. $1,750.00 CAD. 441-00158

A significant weight men’s/lady’s rose gold bracelet is a rare thing to see in our estate jewellery displays. Our vintage and estate bracelets are almost always yellow gold and occasionally white gold. I don’t remember the last time we even have something like this is rose gold. The specific hue of this bracelet is very subtle, it doesn’t look coppery like some rose gold alloys. The bracelet is the popular Figaro style link measuring 6.7mm wide, with a length of just under 8 1/2 inches. This length should fit the average man’s wrist and most women’s. Each link is 2.5mm thick and contributes to a substantial 19.6 grams in total weight. It is in excellent condition showing no wear between the links. It is estate priced at $1,750.00 CAD. Stock #441-00158.

15kt. curb link bracelet, 35gr., over 8 inches long, 8mm wide. $2,475.00 CAD. 441-00183

Without a makers mark, we can’t determine the exact age of this rose gold bracelet but it certainly speaks of antique and must be close to 100 years old. Manufacturing in 15 karat gold was discontinued in Britain in 1932 and shortly after in Commonwealth countries. This likely occurred because 14 karat from the U.S.A. was gaining in popularity and is only slightly less pure 58.3% versus 62.5%. Every single link has been karat stamped 15 and .625 (the decimal equivalent of 15 karat) which is something we typically encounter on very old chains, usually pocket watch chains. We feel confident at least that it predates its Cuban link name which wasn’t officially coined until the late 70s. Not an exact Cuban but with each 12.4mm x 8mm link measuring a heavy 5mm tall they certainly mimic the bulk of a Cuban. The impressive 35 gram bracelet measures over 8 inches long and is equipped with a heavy hidden box catch and safety chain. The estate price is $2,475.00 CAD. Stock #441-00183.


18kt. Italian made hollow retro bracelet 9.8gr. $780.00 CAD. e12425

The main feature of this unique bracelet are the four paper lantern inspired links featuring a soft ridged pattern and decorative piercing. Each is separated by 18mm long twisting cage links. The 9.8 gram hollow bracelet is made from two slightly different tones of 18 karat yellow gold. The retro bohemian statement piece measures 7 3/4 and is secured with a high quality lobster clasp.

14kt. nautical link bracelet, 8 1/4″, 18.1gr., 7mm wide, solid construction $1,400.00 CAD. e14040

The nautical link is a lesser-known staple style, offering a bright convex channel running the middle of each link. This example is impressive for two reasons, its solid construction and 7mm width. Weighing in at 18.1 grams, the 14 karat yellow gold, the bracelet is certainly a statement. The 8 1/4 inch piece is secured with heavy end caps and an oversized lobster clasp. Estate price $1,400.00 CAD. Stock #e14040.

0.25ct. tw. VS-H 14kt hinged bangle bracelet 11.2gr. $1,200.00 CAD. e12860

One of our favorite ring designs turned into a diamond bangle! The bypass style curls into a graceful wave crashing on to either side of the diamond trio. To keep that ellipse spirit the diamonds are sleekly two prong set. The trio equal 0.25 carats together of surprisingly high VS-H quality. Keeping with that quality the bangle has been made from 11.2 grams of solid 14 karat yellow gold. It’s hinged on one side and oval in shape to ensure the bangle is always face up. The catch is an extra strong white gold tongue with additional safety lock for added security. Estate price $1,200.00 CAD. Stock #e12860.


18kt. rice link 16 1/4″ necklace & 7 3/4″ bracelet set 46.9gr. $4,140.00 CAD. e14022

As the late comedian, Mitch Hedberg put it, in one of his deadpan nonsequiturs, “rice is great when you’re hungry and want 2000 of something”. This rice link bracelet and necklace set is about 1740 short of that goal. It more than makes up for the deficit consisting, as it does, of 46.9 grams of 18 karat yellow gold. The puffy rice grains and organized by threes and hinged to their neighbors on either side, allowing for controlled movement to ensure they sit flat during wear. They span 8.6mm with the necklace measuring 16 1/4 inches and the bracelet measuring 7 3/4 inches. Each features a hidden box catch with springy white gold tounges and added safety locks. Heavy gauge hollow construction and in perfect condition. Estate price for the set only $4,140.00 CAD. Stock #e14022.

GORI & ZUCCHI vintage 18kt. bracelet 7 1/4″ x 38mm wide 75.5gr. $6,500.00 CAD. e12836

If you follow our estate blog you’ve certainly heard us sing UnoAErre praises. Leopoldo Gori and Carlo Zucchi were the founding fathers of the company, granted Arezzo’s first provincial registered trademark for the gold industry in 1934; 1AR. If you’ve ever been in the store and had the pleasure of taking one of Jamie’s “Italian” classes you’ll know that Uno is 1. Added to Aerre it means first in Arezzo. The partners had actually set up their jewellery factory in 1926, applying industrial innovations to goldsmithing to make jewellery that was both beautiful and affordable. The 1AR trademark, unfortunately, spans the 1930s up until 2001 when the company changed to their long-form UNOAERRE trademark. This statement bracelet is hard to date as chunky yellow gold link bracelets have been in and out of popularity for decades. Luckily they are in right now as the seventies are seeing a resurgence. We’d guess this piece was made way back before President Nixon ended the gold standard in 1971 when gold was selling for less than $40.00 USD per ounce. The tapestry inspired hollow links span 38.8mm wide and 7 1/4 inches long. The 75.5 grams of 18 karat gold are secured to the wrist with a hidden, oversized box catch with two safety locks. We’ve priced this amazing piece of jewellery for under its wholesale replacement cost. Showing no wear and tear of any kind. $6,500.00 CAD. Stock #e12836.

1.40ct. tw. SI-I diamond infinity bracelet, 27.9gr. 18 karat gold, $4,270.00 CAD. e14341

At a substantial 27.9 grams, this bracelet’s quality really speaks for itself (but in favor of preserving my job, I’ll rattle on about it anyway). The bracelet features a backdrop of stylized infinity symbols in warm, top-quality 18 karat yellow gold, strung together by diamond-encrusted white gold links. The bracelet measures a statement-making 11.3mm by 7 1/4 inches in length. Between the 8 connecting links there are 48 hand-set round brilliant cut diamonds equalling approximately 1.40 carats total weight of bright SI-I quality. The final connector link is a hidden clasp that snaps tightly closed. Estate price $4,270.00 CAD. Stock #e14341.

Yellow gold is back and this fancy link diamond tennis bracelet is heavy on the yellow with channel set diamonds in white gold connecting sections. The 35 round brilliant cut diamonds are bright, full of sparkle, and conservatively graded I1-J. This bracelet is in perfect condition, showing no wear of any kind. We didn’t even need to polish it in preparation for sale, only an ultrasonic cleaning was needed to make it look new. Even the plunger style clasp shows no wear and secures with a satisfying click. The white sections were cast from actual white gold and not just simply rhodium plated yellow gold. It is more costly to produce a piece of jewellery in true two tone, but the results are better and longer lasting. The 12.1 gram 14 karat gold bracelet measures 7.2mm wide and a touch under 7 inches long. Estate priced at $1,995.00 CAD. Stock #171-00063.

3.00ct. tw. diamond tennis bracelets with baguettes I1-IJ, 12.4gr. 14kt. $2,730.00 CAD. 171-00064

An interesting and artistic interpretation of a diamond tennis bracelet. Aside from the 96 channel set rectangular baguette cut diamonds, there isn’t a straight edge on this bracelet. The baguettes are set in 8 soft wave shape links connected by 8 round diamond clusters. Each cluster measures 7.5mm in diameter and contains 7 round brilliant cut diamonds. The 152 diamonds weigh an estimated 3.00 carats in combined weight and are of pleasant I1-J quality, not perfect but they look great and sparkle quite well. The bracelet is secured by a sturdy plunger catch that mimics one of the wave links, seamlessly integrating into the link pattern with only a side safety clasp that is visible. Two loops have been conveniently soldered to the other side of the clasp if you’d like to add a chain for extra security. The extra chain isn’t necessary and we’d likely remove the connecting loops. It’s kind of like wearing suspenders and a belt to keep your pants on, it’s a little overkill. The bracelet is in like new condition showing no worn joints. It measures a rather standard 7 1/4 inches long, weighs 12.4 grams, and is estate priced at $2,730.00 CAD. Stock #171-00064.

The 14 karat yellow gold bracelet is of solid construction weighing a sturdy 18.5 grams and measuring 7 1/2 inches in overall length. A custom safety chain has been added in addition to the white gold plunger clasp and side safety lock. This safety chain can be shortened in about a minute to fit over a smaller hand or completely removed as it really isn’t necessary.

Three rows of braided gold, finished with a Florentine brush to highlight the woven nature of this unique bracelet. What makes this 20mm wide bracelet most unusual is the Handarbeit stamp on the clasp, German for “handwork”. Pointing us of course, to the country of origin for this bracelet being Germany!

18kt. two-tone, hollow Figaro link bracelet, 8 1/2″, 20.3gr. $1,450.00 CAD. e14176

Most people only know of three colours of gold but it can be alloyed into a surprising number of hues, including green, blue, and purple. Before you get excited, these colours are so subtle they take a trained eye to pick them out from their common counterparts. Especially as you get into the higher karats where the majority of the gold content is actually pure gold, reducing the impact of colour changing alloy metals. This two-tone hollow Figaro is a perfect example, can you spot the colour difference in these pictures? We could barely spot it in person but the long links are white gold. When you’re working with 75% pure gold there isn’t a lot of room to wash away that intense yellow tone. The subtlety works to draw in the eye as you puzzle over what it is that seems different about the piece. The bracelet itself measures 9.7mm wide by 8 1/2 inches long, ending in decorative caps and an oversized stylized lobster clasp. Estate price $1,450.00 CAD. Stock #e14176.

4.00ct. Art Deco diamond bracelet 14kt. white gold $4,830.00 CAD. e8921

e8921.1 Art Deco diamond bracelet 14 karat goldDiamond bracelets have always been popular estate items. In fact, I wish we had more of them to offer but they don’t come in very often. So when one as pretty as this shows up it makes a welcome addition to our estate jewellery collection. The Art Deco design is very apparent with the geometric shapes found throughout. 17 old mine cut and European cut diamonds ranging in size from approximately 0.18 carats to over 0.30 carats are bead set along the entire length. With an average quality of SI2-I1-JK they sparkle with a unique combination of brilliance and dispersion only made possible by antique diamonds. Old mine cut and early European cut diamonds have very small table facets and tall crowns. This combination promotes the break up of light causing a more colourful display of sparkle when compared to a modern brilliant cut diamond. The 17.1 grams bracelet is of a standard 7-inch length. A tight fold-over clasp with a safety chain ensures the bracelet will stay on your arm. A December 2001 appraisal is included with purchase that describes the handmade bracelet estimating a total diamond weight of 5.75 carats. Our opinion of the total weight is a little more conservative at approximately 4.00 carats. Excellent condition showing no worn links or joints. Estate priced at $4,830.00 CAD.

This is one of the best-built tennis bracelets we’ve ever encountered! At 20.8 grams it is far heftier than the standard tennis bracelet with that heft representing sturdy links and hinged connections between each link. This overdone scale is especially important in tennis bracelets as they tend to wear faster than other bracelet styles. By starting this heavy the bracelet (if properly cared for) will have double or triple the lifespan of the standard tennis bracelet. Now, you wouldn’t go to this kind of trouble building something to then adorn it with piddly diamonds!

They rest at either side of the intertwining diamond top and the lock is at the exact bottom of the bangle. This solves the problem of the clasp and hinge peeking out at the sides of the wrist but it limits the ability for the bangle to open up. That also limits the size of wrist that can fit into it. The triple twist has been protectively channel set with 0.20 carats of SI2-I1-J round brilliant cut diamonds. Made from 10.1 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold the piece is in like new condition showing no signs of wear. Estate price $910.00 CAD. Stock #e12369.

 


9kt. rose gold vintage hinged bangle bracelet 9.6gr. $560.00 CAD. e12248 441-00194

Straight out of early 1900s Europe, ready to be a conversation piece. The 9 karat rose gold rail bangle is patterned across its front half with a lace-inspired trim. The bangle is hollow constructed thanks to the expansion of industrial techniques into jewellery production. Despite that, it still weighs 9.6 grams and is in great shape! My favorite part of this piece of history is the hand engraved initials M.R. on the inside of the clasp. A little reminder of the woman this was originally purchased for over a hundred years ago. The bangle has been equipped with a yellow gold safety chain for added peace of mind. The estate price is $560.00 CAD. Stock #e12248 441-00194.

14kt. 23.4gr. diamond & ruby tennis bracelet 3.00ct. tw. $2,660.00 CAD. e10558

The neutral colour of white diamonds looks great with virtually any coloured gem stone. Every imaginable colour can benefit from the brilliance and dispersions provided by nice quality diamonds. A dash of vibrant red does a great job at highlighting the overall brilliance of diamonds set into rhodium enhanced white gold. The colour is used as an accent, not over powering just enough to add interest through contrast. The extremely well made bracelet certainly deserves that extra attention grabbing pop of colour. Made from 23.4 grams of 14 karat gold the 7 inch long by 7.8mm wide bracelet is in virtually unworn condition. The 1.25 carats of I1-J round brilliant cut diamonds twinkle between highly polished decorative bars. The striking red comes from 1.75 carats of round brilliant cut natural red rubies, surprisingly bright for their petite size. Secured with a sturdy plunger clasp and side safety catch. This tennis bracelet is equally suited for a night out or daily wear. Estate price $2,660.00 CAD. Stock #e10558.

Diamond & blue glass platinum Art Deco bracelet 19.5gr. 1.50ct. tw. SI-HI $3,500.00 CAD. e12019

The 1930s were a time of change caused by two major events, the first was of course the Great Depression, the second the Silver Screen. The Great Depression changed peoples tastes by changing their pocket books. Imitation gems, rhinestones, coloured glass gems called Paste, and base metals all became common and fashionable. They worked their way into the jewellery of the affluent as well who were also on tighter budgets, though they still made large purchases they scaled back where they could. Compared to the gaiety of the Roaring Twenties the 30s were dull and subdued. To escape the reality of their diminished lives people spent their time at the movies. Still captured in black and white the costume designers avoided coloured gems that appeared grey and lifeless and focused on brilliant colourless stones set in white metals. This transitioned off-screen to consumers focusing on white metals like the platinum of this 1930s antique bracelet. The 21 old European cut diamonds are on trend for the era (though when are diamonds ever out of fashion?) and equal 1.50 carats of nice SI-HI quality. With these strong beginnings it is surprising to find the blue stones are French cut glass and not sapphire. But that was the trend of the era and the blue was simply meant to offset the brilliant diamonds so why pay 100 times the cost for sapphire. The bracelets edges are decorated with engraved scroll work and it is fastened with a hidden plunger clasp, hidden safety lock, and a safety chain for security during wear. The bracelet is in great shape but the glass, being glass, is showing signs of its 8 decades of use. They have taken on a frosted look from wear that can only really be seen with close inspection. A recent Harold Weinstein Ltd. Toronto appraisal estimated the value at $11,000.00. The antique time capsule has been estate priced at $3,500.00 CAD. Ctock #e12019.

18kt. two-tone Figaro link bracelet, 7 1/4″, 6.8mm wide, hollow construction, 11.4gr. $1,190.00 CAD. e14041

A puffier Figaro link is a great showcase of the subtlety of 18 karat white gold. The longer links in this bracelet are actually non-rhodium plated white gold but it takes close observation to catch the difference. When you get to a 75% pure gold content you only have 25% of alloy available to change the colour, which is not a lot when you are trying to transform extra-warm 24 karat gold into its polar opposite, icy white. The 6.8mm wide bracelet is hollow constructed from 11.4 grams of 18 karat gold. It measures 7 1/4 inches long, a slightly shorter lady’s length. The bracelet is equipped with heavy end caps and an oversized, easy to fasten lobster catch. Estate price $1,190.00 CAD. Stock #e14041.

Two (or three or four) bracelets for the price of one! This reversible curb/Cuban link features plain high polished gold on one side and a half-polished half-stippled pattern on the other. The real fun with this piece is the ability to mix up that textured pattern by turning individual links around. You can turn just a couple to make an eye-catching accent or turn every other or every third to make a completely new pattern. The versatile bracelet measures a gents standard 8 1/2 inches long by 11.1mm wide. It’s been made from 31.5 grams of 10 karat yellow gold and is fastened with an integrated clasp.

Completely solid construction and weighing in at 42.6 grams, this piece of jewellery is more of a fancy link gold bracelet than a tennis bracelet. Think of the 36 small diamonds as a no charge addition supplying some subtle bling. Despite the light airy open look of the circular twisted wire links, you’ll be surprised at the heft of this bracelet. The diamonds are of I1 clarity and JK colour bead set into white gold bridge links. This bracelet measures 7 3/4 inches long and is secured with an integrated clasp that practically disappears when closed. In like new condition showing no wear of any kind between any of the link joints. This bracelet is priced well below its wholesale value at $3,150.00 CAD. Stock #171-00055.

18kt. Sauro carbon fiber ruby bracelet Ippopotamo ASCF349RU $3,230.00 CAD. 441-00176

Staring at this bracelet and trying to put my finger on what it reminded me of when I reread its title, Ippopotamo, and it hit me! My Italian is not good (non-existent) but even I could translate ippopotamo into hippopotamus. Thinking of that lumbering death machine (one of the deadliest animals on the African continent) this 18 karat yellow gold clasp resolves into the image of a hippo’s face peeking out from some sub-Saharan river. Even the natural rubies on the clasp’s release buttons mimic the pink skin around the beady black eyes of the hippo (random hippo fact: hippos’ pink tints are caused by a natural red oil their skin produces to protect them from sunburn). Not only does the clasp take its design inspiration from the hippo it also happens to be an ingenious piece of gold engineering. To release the clasp both button “eyes” have to be depressed and pushed forward, swinging the “top jaw” forward and releasing it from the protruding tooth that acts as a safety catch, guarding against accidental button release. Really, the entire bracelet is a marvel of Italian goldsmithing, the gold hinge and gold clasp have been riveted in place with milled titanium pins. The 14.6mm x 5.0mm bangle body is made from lightweight super-light carbon fiber finished in a high-gloss dome. These super-hard airy materials leave you aware of only the luxurious heft of solid 18 karat yellow gold. This kind of ingenuity could only have come from Sauro, one of the most innovative jewellery houses in Italy, and that is saying something! The Fibra Ruby Bangle Ippopotamo is currently available on their website for $7,850.00 USD. Our example is in like-new condition, appearing unworn. This piece has never been polished or refinished in any way. It comes with its original box, leather portfolio carrying case, and polishing cloth. It is estate priced at $3,230.00 CAD.

The 0.15 carat total weight of petite round brilliant cut diamonds have been recessed into the bead to protect their settings from wear. They are certainly worth protecting at VS-GH quality.

14kt. hollow hinged bangle bracelet, 10mm wide, 32 grams, 7+ inches. $2,800.00 CAD. 441-00203

Simple design and high quality are always in style and never get old. Yes, this hinged bangle is hollow but don’t let that be a concern. The gauge of hollow tubing can vary from so thin it can’t even be polished for fear of putting a hole in it to several millimeters. The weight of this 14 karat yellow gold bangle is well over 1 ounce at more than 32 grams. If it was made completely solid, it would weigh close to 3 ounces and be almost too heavy to wear, and cost 3 times as much. The colour of this bracelet is not typical for North American or Italian 14 karat jewellery. It has a slightly greenish/yellow hue that is associated with a more silver rich alloy than those used domestically. This alloy colour is often seen in Germany, there is a reasonable chance this item was manufactured in that part of Western Europe. Wherever it came from and whoever made it, they were very skilled at their craft. The hinge is very tight with no play, The plunger style clasp has been designed with 2 locking “clicks”. When the clasp is being closed you not only feel the locking tongue grooves, but you can easily hear them click with a loud auditory snap. The sturdy clasp has been further augmented with a side safety clasp for an extra level of security. This bracelet only needed a light surface polishing and cleaning to prepare it for sale in our estate department. It remains in practically new condition. There are only a couple of very light dings on the sharp edges. The flat highly polished surface remains in dent-free condition. The bracelet measure 10.1 mm wide, 3.5mm thick, and just over 7 inches inside circumference. It is estate priced at $2,800.00 CAD. Stock #441-00203.

After much online sleuthing we’ve come up with nothing but dead ends for Apichart Warrachart. All the leads dry up in the early 2000s but it seems he was rather a rising star in the jewellery design world. In fact, most of what we could find were his award winning pieces entered into different American design competitions. His work seems to build around custom cut gemstones and innovative uber modern designs. Take this bracelet, we have never in our 64 years seen anything remotely like it before! It features a repeating pattern of yellow/green quartz, amethyst, and blue topaz windows all hand cut with beveled edges front and back. The windows peer down on tube set pink tourmalines. Those tourmalines are partnered by matching links that act as connectors between the lens links. The effect being, alternating naturally magenta tourmalines, magenta-turned-bright-red through the yellow filter, turned purple through the amethyst filter, and turned violet through the topaz filter. I can’t even fathom how anyone could think up such an idea! Not to mention the dedication to quality, the entire bracelet is made from top quality 18 karat yellow and white gold weighing in at a significant 30.3 grams in total. The 13.30 carats of topaz and quartz along with the 5.95 carats of tourmalines are all set into mirror finished white gold that retains its bright rhodium finish despite the piece being made in 2002. The clasp is a work of engineering so complicated we will have to demonstrate it in person. This most likely unique, mysterious jewellery masterpiece in like new condition is estate priced for $5,005.00 CAD. Stock #e13096 241-00039.

10kt. curb link bracelet, 7 3/4 inch, 16.7 grams. $1,050.00 CAD. 441-00202

Solidly constructed jewellery is surprisingly heavy, even when it’s made from somewhat diluted 10 karat gold. This bracelet looks light and airy until you pick it. At nicely over half an ounce you will immediately feel the quality. By volume, pure gold is more than 19 times heavier than water. Even when it has alloyed with silver (close to 46% lighter than gold) it is still deceptively heavy when solid. This 10 karat gold bracelet contains 41.7% pure gold, with mostly silver added to keep the price and colour more in line with North American tastes. It measures 7mm wide and just under 7 3/4 inches in length. It will nicely fit the slender gentleman and most ladies. We can easily remove a few links if required. It is secured by a sturdy lobster clasp. All 27 open curb links have been constructed from 1.7mm round wire and are all in like new condition, showing no wear and tear of any kind.

Really it’s a wearable art piece made up of two sizes of hollow yellow gold balls, matte-finished sculptural white gold framework, and a dotting of elevated diamonds. It spans a head-turning 12.5mm wide but still manages to look airy. The bracelet certainly feels luxurious at 54.1 grams of 18 karat, a clear statement of its high quality.

Antique seed pearl hinged bangle bracelet 7.1gr. 14kt. $840.00 CAD. e13457

Seed pearls are the quintessential mark of antique jewellery. The organic gemstone saw a wave of popularity during the late 1800s as the industrial revolution started seeping into jewellery making. Suddenly there were jewellery factories with rows on rows of jewellers at benches working with new machinery to mass produce jewellery. This jewellery was aimed at the new middle class who were hungry for more affordable versions of the luxuries of the first class. Our antique hinged bangle would have been made in one of these factories partially by machine and then assembled by jewellers. The bangle is that early form of hollow tube, displaying a thicker wall than you’d find in modern hollow pieces. The long marquise shaped top would have been made separately then soldered to the bangle. Next, it would have gone to the setter’s bench where a row of graduated demi pearls was hand selected and set. Adding a finishing touch of delicate millgrain to the points of the marquise. The bangle has been equipped with a sturdy three piece hinge and locked plunger style clasp. For added measure, a cable link safety chain was soldered to either side of the clasp to ensure the bracelet can’t fall off if it opens during wear. As proof of quality, the 14 karat yellow gold bangle weighs in at 7.1 grams and is in like-new condition. Estate price $840.00 CAD. Stock #e13457.

If you’re going to go two-tone you should opt for 18 karat. Nothing contrasts rhodium plated white gold better than extra warm 18 karat yellow. Get into a washier colour like 10 karat and that contrast is much harder to notice. This bracelet has a couple of additional head turning qualities, not the least of which is its unique link combination! The white gold links seem to be patterned after old fashion jacks, with the yellow gold links forming around them. The bracelet spans 7.5mm wide and 7 1/2 inches long. It has been hollow constructed but still weighs a significant 15.1 grams, showing no dents or dings. The decorative clasp has an easy to fasten lobster catch with an ingenious catch to keep the bracelet laying flat during wear. Estate price $1400.00 CAD. Stock #e13650.

BIRKS 14kt hinged bangle 25.6gr. (minor dent at hinge) $1,480.00 CAD. e13970

This bold fan of yellow gold has been thoughtfully manufactured by Canadian jewellery juggernaut Birks. The bangle has been built to look like three freely rolling bangles without the clanging chimes. To maintain the three-dimensional quality of stacked bands Birks literally stacked three hollow bangles on top of each other fused them to plates, and built a hinge and clasp into those plates. The effect is very convincing as the bangle stretches from 5.4mm wide to 15mm wide by 8mm thick to 5mm thick at the fanning point. The bangle is cast from 25.6 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold and despite many years of wear, only sustained one small dent just above the clasp. The white gold clasp is also inventive, featuring a double grooved lock to catch the bangle if you tug it past the first locking groove. Estate price $1,480.00 CAD. Stock #e13970.

Hollow but hefty. Just because this bracelet wasn’t constructed using completely solid links, doesn’t mean it isn’t a good quality piece. The fit and finish are excellent as is the Italian tradition when it comes to chain manufacturing. It features large end tabs and a big sturdy lobster clasp. The heavy gauge hollow tubing results in a finished weight of 10.6 grams, with a length of 8 1/4 inches, and a width of 6.2mm. The premium 18 karat yellow gold will resist oxidation and solder joint corrosion far better than a lower quality alloy.

The links aren’t completely identical, and the fine details are not perfect, but that is what makes it interesting. The huge (10.0mm x 21.5mm) lobster clasp has a slightly different hue and is a production line component. It is equipped with a very stiff and sturdy spring.

“You only get one first impression” and in the case of these link bracelets that impression is hefty. Their 15.2 and 14.4 gram weight are surprising in the hand as they look lighter than they weigh. Each 14 karat curb link bracelet measures 5.2mm wide and consist of a subtle cross between yellow and rose gold. One measures 8 inches long and the other 8 1/4 inches. Both are equipped with heavy spring ring catches with scale matched ring ends for easy fastening. The make of the clasps and the colour of the metal seem to point to an older vintage. Meaning that these bracelets were most likely high quality charm bracelets back in the bygone days of traditional hang charms or perhaps they were once part of a sophisticated pocket watch chain. Estate price for each $960.00 CAD and $1,002.00 CAD. Stock numbers e13148 and e13149

 


Hollow 14kt. tri-colour gold fancy link bracelet 22.5 grams $1,200.00 CAD. e12888

The genius of this bracelet is the subtle repetition of peaks seen in the larger links and again in the faceted cross-hatching of the rectangular connecting links. It ties the three-tone bracelet together in a thoughtful way while adding interest through contrasting finishes. The hollow nature of its manufacturing allows its 22.5 grams of 14 karat gold to be used for maximum impact. The wrist-dominating geometric piece is clasped with a hidden white gold box catch with an additional safety lock. Estate price $1,200.00 CAD. Stock #e12888.

14kt. flexible tube bangle bracelet, 5.9gr. $490.00 CAD. 441-00151

The twist on bangle is certainly the least complicated option but they require some special consideration. These pieces are almost always hollow, allowing them to be flexible enough to twist onto the wrist. That means the bangles need to be worn mindfully as heavy wear can dent them. Our 5.9 gram 14 kart yellow gold bangle is in brand new condition, a testament to its quality. The bangle ends are nobbed with decorative white gold collars to add a touch of visual interest. The understated bangle can be worn layered with other pieces or worn on its own as a great addition to the minimalist look. Estate price $490.00 CAD. Stock #441-00151.

The bangle itself has been fabricated from 10 karat yellow gold and is secured with an ingenious double locking clasp. Estate price for this one of a kind piece $1,680.00 CAD. Stock #e13429.

18″, 7 1/2″, cubic zirconia necklace/bracelet set, 38gr., 18kt., Italy. $4,270.00 CAD. 231-00140

There is a European flair to this necklace and bracelet, with its sleek modern design and contrasting high polish and machine-finished links. The vertical grained matte links certainly contrast the cubic zirconia studded S links, making their sparkle all the more brilliant. The necklace features 6 gem-set links across the collar bone, while the bracelet features them all the way around the wrist alternating with non gem-set links. It’s a complimentary set but without being too matchy-matchy. The necklace measures 18 inches long and the bracelet 7 1/2 inches. Both are equipped with button-release hidden box catches and safety locks. In further European fashion, the set is made from top-quality 18 karat white gold. Despite being hollow the set still weighs 38 grams, no surprise they are Italian-made. Estate price for the set only, $4,270.00 CAD. Stock #231-00140.

14kt. hollow ball, spring loaded bracelet, Italian made, 18.5gr. $1,470.00 CAD. e14224

Great innovation is often inspired by the greatest engineer of all, nature. This Italian-made bangle takes its cue from the soft flexible scales of snakes. Each interlocking link has a free range of motion to bend, contract, or expand as your wrist moves within its grip. Resulting in a gentle and flexible pressure spread evenly across your wrist during wear, making for a much more comfortable fit than a traditional bangle. The 18.5 gram 14 karat white gold piece is spring-loaded to ensure it stays in place. It’s been capped with 12mm hollow balls instead of a decorative snake’s head and tail tip, too bad if you ask us, as we admire all things serpentine. Estate price $1,470.00 CAD. Stock #e14224.

You’ve probably seen the paperclip/elongated link necklace everywhere this past year, if you can’t picture it just imagine this link but elongated and thinned out a little. We really don’t know where it came from but the trend has spread like wildfire. If you want to hop on the bandwagon but want to be subtle about it this heavy cable link bracelet is a nice nod. Even better, if you’re simply looking for a high-quality bracelet this is the one. It measures 7.5 inches long but manages to weigh in at a hefty 13.6 grams. The 4.9mm wide links have been bevelled to add an extra bit of shine and the bracelet has been equipped with an oversized 10 karat spring-ring catch for easy fastening.

FOPE Italy. 18kt. diamond necklace & bracelet, 32.9gr., 0.15ct. tw. VS-GH. $3,500.00 CAD. 161-00147

FOPE has an almost century-long history of high-quality jewellery manufacturing behind its name. The brand began in 1929 as a small jewellery manufacturing shop with 20 employees. They expanded multiple times over the decades, and in the 1980s developed a specialized gold mesh that would become the iconic feature of their brand. The Novecento mesh is made from an interlocking connection of the individual links that make up the necklace and bracelet we are featuring today. The set is certainly interesting for more reasons than its links, the station-style pieces feature freely swinging diamond studded drops. The 7.5-inch long bracelet spaces its 5 diamonds evenly across the wrist and the 16.5 inch long necklace focuses its 7 diamonds across the collarbone. The petite VS-FG round brilliant cut diamonds equal 0.15 carats together. Both the chain and bracelet are equipped with a stylized lobster clasp stamped proudly with its FOPE origins. Being made by one of Italy’s most luxurious manufacturers pretty much ensures the pieces would be made from top-quality 18 karat white gold. Both pieces are in like-new condition, retaining their original chromy white rhodium finishes. They are accompanied by their original FOPE cloth lines box.

0.75ct. tw. I1-LM diamond tennis bracelet 11.7gr. $910.00 CAD. e13135

Yellow gold has been pushed off for white gold and rose gold lately but the true form of gold has some hidden bonuses that most consumers aren’t aware of. On top of being luxurious and rich in tone yellow gold has the ability to affect the diamonds it carries. Set a warmer hue diamond into white gold and the contrast will make the diamond show its colour more obviously. By the same rule if you set a warmer diamond into metal that is more yellow than the diamond itself the diamond will appear more white by contrast. That effect is showcased in the twisting garlands of petite round single cut diamonds that wrap around this tennis bracelet. The I1-LM diamonds appear as white as the rhodium that surrounds them until you really scrutinize them. The bracelet itself has been designed to look more like a bangle with the link connections disguised beneath a repeating pattern that flows from one link to the next. The effect is a continuous woven pattern made of 11.7 grams of 10 karat yellow gold and 114 hand set diamonds. The bracelet is secured by a hidden white gold plunger clasp with an additional safety lock. Estate price $910.00 CAD. Stock #e13135.


“Cartier inspired” ring with cuff bracelet 20.8gr. tw. $350.00 & $1,750.00 CAD. e13957 e13956

When Louis Cartier launched his Trinity de Cartier ring in 1924 he basically took ownership of anything depicting tri-gold bands. In the 97 years since the Trinity was originally released, Cartier has revisited the tri-gold concept countless times. It is a look they’ve never abandoned, because really, why would you? For close to 100 years many other jewellers have picked up the theme and built on its brand recognition. This cuff and ring combo is not only inspired by Cartier, but also made to their quality standards. The ring is cast from 3 grams of top quality 18 larat gold and the cuff from 15.8 grams. They’ve been machine finished to increase their tensile strength and to draw attention to their tri-gold nature. Each coloured stripe has been sandblasted to maximize its colour contrast (take a look at how subtle the two-tone is when it’s left high polished inside the cuff and ring) and given a bright cut groove to boldly separate it from its neighbors. The cuff measures 9.9mm wide and the band measures 5.9mm wide. Both end in high polished yellow gold buckles, creating subtle belt imagery, a nod to the buckle rings that have been popular since the mid-1800s. The pair are sold separately for $350.00 CAD and $1750.00 CAD. Stock numbers e13957 and e13956.

18 karat Italian 9mm hollow rope bracelet 18.2 grams. $1,344.00 CAD. e11862

If you’ve ever attended a local First Nations Powwow you’ve probably heard the unique twinkling sound of Jingle Dresses. Said by the Ojibwe to have originated in Ontario. The dress and style is meant to celebrate the healing power and dignity of the Ojibwa woman. The sound of the dance is compared to raindrops and it’s hard not to understand the healing nature when you hear it preformed. If you’ve not had the pleasure (I’d make it a New Years Resolution if I were you), the tinny twinkle of this hollow woven bracelet is as close as a piece of jewellery can get to the ethereal sound. The well made 8 1/2 inch long statement bracelet measures an impressive 9mm wide. It’s been made from 18.2 grams of top quality 18 karak yellow gold and is secured with an over-sized spring ring catch and fixed ring end. Estate price for the unique rope bracelet $1,344.00 CAD.

Another unique interpretation of the classic curb link bracelet, this time the links seem to resemble some manner of flattened basket weave. The compact weave gives a sleek geometric appearance disguising its durability by opting for large areas of contact instead of bulky joints. Meaning that despite its low profile this 9 1/4 inch bracelet will probably outlive its traditional linked peers. The 10.7mm wide bracelet is secured with an integrated figure eight clasp.

22 karat gold ruby bracelet 7.00ct. tw. 28.9gr. $3,250.00 CAD. e13025

In Hindu astrology there are nine gemstones associated with the heavenly bodies. Each of the gems were believed to carry specific properties for effecting the wearer’s life and luck. As such they were traditionally not meant to be worn together as you could not predict the effects of combining those different forces. Eventually a piece was created combining all nine in the order in which they align in the heavens. This type of jewellery is called a navaratna, meaning nine celestial deities, and places ruby at the center as ruby is tied to the sun. The remaining gems are emerald, pearl, yellow sapphire, hessonite garnet, cat’s eye chrysoberyl, diamond, blue sapphire, and coral. By having all nine in perfect alignment in one piece the wearer could achieve complete cosmic harmony; or you could opt for the tradition by wearing a single gem in the hopes of influencing its specific properties within your life. This Indian bangle features approximately 7.00 carats of natural rubies for maximum cosmic effect. The 158 handset round faceted rubies are only interrupted by the heavy gold hinge and sturdy box catch. As is appropriate in Middle Eastern markets the bangle is made from extra warm 22 karat gold and weighs in at an impressive 28.9 grams. The exotic bangle is priced at $3,250.00 CAD. Stock #e13025.

Which do you like better? The soft, round, curving double row, round tube bracelet, or the hard-edged, two-tone, square tube bracelet? Tough call, both are beautifully made by the Italian masters Uno-Aerre and another unknown manufacturer from the Arezzo region in Italy. Both of these bracelets are in excellent condition, displaying only the tiniest amount of wear in the form of a few minor scuffs. They are of heavy gauge hollow construction. The seamless tubing is sturdy but not without limits and should be worn with a degree of caution. A strong internal spring provides continuous tension to keep them closed. The double row bracelet has the additional security feature of double locking side safety clasps. Two safety clasps are a bit overkill but effective; it’s like wearing a belt and suspenders at the same time to keep your pants up. Made from premium 18 two-tone gold to best display the rich yellow hue and contrasting bright white rhodium finish. They weigh 10.2 grams and 6.1 grams.

14kt. fancy link Italian made bracelet 26.1gr. $1,890.00 CAD. e12694

The earliest chainmail dates from the 3rd century BC and is often attributed to the Celts but there is evidence it had its origins in Asia. The first examples were simple open metal rings sewn to padded leather. Eventually evolving into full-blown mail tunics with gauntlets and foot covers. By the 4th century, the technique had transferred to goldsmiths with gold and silver chain mail. The technique stuck and can be seen here as the backbone of this Italian-made statement bracelet. From a practical standpoint, chainmail is ideal for jewellery with its full range of articulation. It wears comfortable and lightweight, occupying most of the wrist with its 22mm width. The mail pattern is decorated with wide horizontal links and chubby licks of flame patterned with a striking stippled texture. The effect of that combination is a unique warm brilliance that catches the light in every direction. Though hollow the 7 1/2 inch long bracelet still weighs in at 26.1 grams of 14 karat yellow gold, a testament to its quality manufacturing. The piece is secured by an inventive double locking bar catch with a double button release for added security. $1,890.00 CAD. Stock #e12694.

1.00ct. tw. I2-K diamond tennis bracelet 10kt. 10.5gr. $900.00 CAD. 171-00061

Look close, really close, the diamonds in this bracelet are not as large as they appear. Jewellery manufacturers and diamond setters are very clever at making the diamonds in their creations appear larger than they really are. When rhodium electroplating in the 1930s developed as an ultra-white electroplated finish over gold, the craft of making illusionary diamond settings exploded. This 1.00 carat total weight diamond bracelet is a great example of an illusion setting. The 48 diamonds that are set into each of the flexible links measure around 1.7mm in diameter. The bright cut, rhodium-plated, faceted links measure 3.5mm in width. The circular links are designed to mimic the faceted crown of a full-cut diamond. The 4 yellow gold claws that are pretending to hold the larger 3.5mm faceted frame strengthen the illusion. From a casual glance, this bracelet looks more like it has a total weight of around 8.00 carats. The 10 karat, 7 1/2 inch bracelet weighs nicely over 10 grams and is secured by a plunger clasp with a side safety lock. Each of the 48 round brilliant cut diamonds is conservatively graded I2 clarity with a K colour. The bracelet is in very good condition showing little wear and full rhodium coverage everywhere it should. The estate price of just $900 CAD is an excellent value. Stock #171-00061.

Sterling silver hinged bangle bracelet, hand engraved, 1 inch, wide, 40gr. $100.00 CAD. 651-00072

We’ll admit to not doing too much with silver. When given a choice we always prefer to work with gold and platinum. Once in a while, we receive a nifty silver estate item that we just can’t resist. In the 70s and 80s, we stocked many sterling silver hinged bangle bracelets just like this one in different widths. Some were beautifully hand engraved like this one, and others were plain. The heavy gauge hollow design has been around for over 100 years and hasn’t changed at all. This example is in remarkable condition. No dents or dings of any kind. Just a little patina from gentle use over the years. This is an excellent example of a classic piece of sterling silver jewellery and is estate priced at just $100.00 CAD. Stock #651-00072.

14kt. gents paperclip bracelet, 8.3gr., 8 1/4″ $660.00 CAD. 441-00187

If this link looks familiar you can count yourself among the fashion-literate. The paperclip chain is everywhere right now and this iteration fuses two “paperclip links” together to ensure they sit tight during wear. The Turkish-made bracelet is heavy gauge hollow constructed but still weighs in at 8.3 grams in 14 karat yellow gold. It features a stylized swiveling lobster clasp that catches on a sturdy end cap.

Just one shy of 60! This 59 diamond tennis bracelet still shines despite missing that numerical milestone. Its combined 1.75 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds are all of bright I1-J quality. That slightly warm colour is whitened by the 14 karat yellow gold that carries it. The bracelet measures a slightly short 7 inches, making it appropriate for a petite wrist. It’s secured with a hidden box catch and an additional safety lock. Estate price $2,100.00 CAD. Stock #171-00041.

14kt. 2.50ct. tw. SI-IJ yellow gold rhodium plated diamond tennis bracelet 8.6gr. $2,640.00 CAD. 171-00046

A diamond line bracelet is a timeless staple and one of this scale even more so as it lends itself well to any occasion. At 2.56mm wide it’s understated enough to be worn every day or layered with other bracelets for laid-back luxury. But worn on its own on a dressier occasion the delicate twinkling of its 78 round brilliant cut diamonds will add a sophisticated touch worn with cocktail dress or evening gown. The 2.74 carats of SI-IJ diamonds are protectively set into individual prong settings in sturdy 14 karat yellow gold that has completely rhodium plated to look like white gold. The 8.6 gram bracelet is in very gold condition showing little to no wear in any of the hinged links. The bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches long and is secured by a hidden box catch with two additional safety locks. This bracelet is accompanied by a Charm Diamond Centres Appraisal and its original GS Laboratories Certificate of Evaluation, suggesting a replacement value averaging $6,200.00.

18kt., 5.7mm, 24″ Franco chain & bracelet, 124.7gr. $12,413.00 CAD. Schofer Germany 431-00378 441-00180

Curb and Cuban link chains have been the go-to design for heavy weight necklaces for decades. The traditional look is strong, durable, and masculine. We get the occasional complaint that they can turn and twist while being worn; a bit of a first world problem no doubt, but never the less it happens. The Franco link is a style with no defined front, back, or sides. The rounded cross section is free to roll and twist without losing symmetry, a great benefit for an active rugged lifestyle. We’ve had many requests over the years for a heavy Franco link estate chain but never had one like this. It measures 5.7mm to 6.4mm in diameter and 24 inches in overall length. An 8 1/4 bracelet of the same design is also available making a matching set. We often think Italy has a lock on high end luxury gold chains but this set was made in Germany by Schofer. They have been manufacturing gold necklaces for over 100 years. Known for high quality and attention to detail, down to the smallest features. The quality can be seen in the swivel lobster clasp and chain ends. These heavy pieces and made from premium 18 karat (750) yellow gold. The necklace weighs 92 grams and the bracelet comes in at 32.7 grams. Both are in excellent original condition, neither have been polished since they left the factory floor. We’d be happy to give them a light refinishing to remove any evidence of previous use. They are priced as a set for $12,413.00 CAD, but available separately for $9,150.00 and $3,263.00. With today’s gold price, finding high quality, 18 karat imported chain for under $100.00 per gram is almost impossible. Stock number 431-00378 (necklace), 441-00180 (bracelet).

14kt. solid link rope bracelet 10.2gr. 8 1/2″, 4mm, $720.00 CAD. e13959

A rope link is probably the worst choice possible for a bracelet, that is if you opt for the industry-standard lightweight hollow rope link. That common option is made of tiny hollow tubes interlocking with each other. As a chain, it has the benefit of a big footprint without a large price point. But make it into a bracelet and it’ll be crushed and dented in no time. The solution is to opt for the rarely encountered solid rope version like this 14 karat yellow example. At 10.2 grams and 4mm in diameter, this bracelet can easily stand up to daily wear. It measures a generous 8 1/2 inches long and features a locking plunger clasp. We can easily shorten it if required. Estate price $720.00 CAD. Stock #e13959

Finding a way to reinvent something as traditional as the curb link takes some serious imagination! This lady’s curb link bracelet graduates gracefully towards its center. The five largest links are white gold and set with diamonds, making a striking centerpiece. The unique bracelet has been made from 12.5 grams of top quality 18 karat gold. The 16 single cut diamonds equal 0.10 carats together, adding a touch of sparkle. At 7 inches it will fit average to a smaller lady’s wrist and has been equipped with a sturdy plunger clasp with an additional safety lock. Estate price $1,400.00 CAD. Stock number e12657.

9kt. heart padlock hollow link bracelet, 12.4gr. Made in England. $700.00 CAD. 441-00162

Heart padlock bracelets first became popular in the Victorian era. They were gifts between two lovers with the man keeping the key and the woman usually wearing the bracelet whenever they had to be separated. This notion certainly wouldn’t fly today which is probably why they are no longer made with accompanying keys. Now the padlocks simply act as decorative clasps and the symbolism has been lost to a passion for antique motifs (thank you Bridgerton and Downton Abbey). This 9 karat rose gold example is in fact British, marked with the assay mark of Birmingham and a date stamp for the 2000s. The heart-shaped padlock hangs from a period-appropriate faceted Cuban link bracelet. The bracelet is hollow constructed, in like-new condition, and weighs in at 12.4 grams. The estate price is $700.00 CAD. Stock #441-00162.

1.75ct. tw tanzanite & diamond bracelet, 7.0gr. 14kt. gold $500.00 CAD. e14531

Most people don’t know that tanzanite naturally forms brown and only becomes blue when exposed to high heat (about 600 degrees Celsius). Some will come out of the ground blue if they’ve been naturally heated at some point over the last billion years or so while waiting to be discovered. The outcome of the heat treatment is not predictable or terribly controllable, the final colour is mostly due to the natural potential of each individual gem crystal. Most will turn the softer lilac tones but some go an intense blueberry tone rivaling high-quality sapphire. The lilac tones create a soft accent for any designer’s pallet and are especially striking against warm yellow gold. This narrow brickwork bracelet uses them as a centerpiece, accenting their soft twinkling blue with petite round brilliant cut diamonds. The 7 gram 14 karat bracelet measures a slightly short 7 inches, making it suitable for a petite wrist. Estate price $500.00 CAD. Stock #e14531.

The Cartier LOVE Bracelet was designed in 1969 as a symbol of the permanence of love. Its design is inherently difficult to put on or take off alone, as the bangle unscrews into two halves and can only be fastened on the edges of the wrist. As such it was meant to be a declaration of love like no other since it couldn’t be removed on a whim (unless you carry the accompanying screwdriver with you everywhere you go!). Our example weighs in at an impressive 32.9 grams of premium 18 karat yellow gold. It’s decorated with 0.42 carats total weight of top-quality Cartier round brilliant cut diamonds. The same bracelet in rose gold B6069917 is currently available on Cartier’s website for $13,900.00. Our estate price is $6,950.00 CAD. Stock #171-00054.

If you need proof of “everything old is new again” let’s examine the “new” it shape in jewellery; the chevron. Remember the eighties? If you weren’t there and didn’t experience firsthand the slave ring everyone was wearing then let me assure you the more sensitively named chevron is not new. Not that we aren’t happy it’s back, the geometric and understated angular line is always welcome here! Not so understated with this diamond encrusted 14 karat cuff bracelet. The 12 gram piece has been channel set with 0.90 carats of bright I1-J round brilliant cut diamonds backed with chromy white rhodium. The hinged chevron snaps securely over most wrists with an additional safety lock for added peace of mind. Such solid construction means the bracelet is as close as you can get to wear it and forget about it quality. Estate price $1,610.00 CAD. Stock #e11883.

Tiffany sterling silver Somerset flexible bangle 7 1/2 inches, 124.1 grams. $700.00 CAD. 651-00068

It is possible to buy a Tiffany “statement” piece for under $1,000.00, as long as it’s made from sterling silver and especially if it’s an estate item like this. The Tiffany Somerset series of bracelets and rings were been retired a few years ago, and are no longer available in their boutiques. This Somerset bangle features a sturdy mesh design that is flexible, springy, and heavier than you’d expect due to the thick gauge sterling silver wire it’s made from. It weighs in at a significant 124 grams (almost exactly 4 troy ounces). At 7 1/2 inches in circumference, it should slip over the smaller to average sized woman’s hand. The bangle bracelet measures 1 inch wide and remains in perfect condition. It has never been polished or refinished. A quick dunk in some silver cleaning solution and an ultrasonic bath have it looking like new. This bangle is estate priced at just $700.00 CAD. Stock #651-00068.

200 hand-set diamonds certainly make a statement! The princess cuts are set tight against each other in pairs of pairs per link. They’ve been backed with bright white rhodium to help them stand out against the warm 14 karat yellow gold of the rest of the bracelet. The diamonds equal an estimated 3.00 carats of I1-KL quality. The 17 gram bracelet measures just a hair over 7 1/2 inches long by 5.2mm wide. The plunger clasp is almost a centerpiece featuring 16 diamonds and a locking mechanism that secures underneath the bracelet ensuring it can’t snag open during wear. Estate price $2,100.00 CAD.

Gold’s luxurious warmth is best shown off with a finish other than high polished. Italian goldsmiths are more adventurous with their finishes than other chain makers. The Florentine finish turns this 18 karat yellow gold into something that best resembles golden metallic linen. The 17.5mm wide bracelet is extra statement-making with that softly shimmering exterior. It’s been made slightly longer at 8 inches, to compensate for the 5.9mm puffiness of its hollow constructed links. They are still quite solid with the bracelet weighing in at 51 grams and showing no dents or dings despite previous wear. The bracelet is secured with an integrated box catch with a springy white gold tongue and an additional safety lock. Estate price, $4,550.00 CAD. Stock #e14206.

18 karat rolo link bracelet by Nicolis Cola Italy 73.3 grams $6,000.00 CAD. e13087

Unfortunately, the hunt for Nicolis Cola did not lead to the Italian designer or any reference to when he operated or where he has gone. But it brought up a slew of vintage link bracelets up for auction all across Europe. All were over the top chunky and had a splash of this rarely-encountered-in-North-America florentine finish. This giant 15.3mm wide rolo link bracelet is completely covered in that linen like matte finish; bringing out the soft glow of the 73.3 grams of extra warm 18 karat gold. Of course, the bracelet is of heavy gauge hollow construction, it would be too heavy to be comfortable if it weren’t. Its hollow nature does not equal fragile in this case. As proof of its durability, the vintage piece shows no dents or dings of any kind. The 8 inch long fashion piece is secured with an almost hidden integrated catch with fold over safety. A lot of gold was used to make this bracelet; the quality is immediately evident when you heft the well over 2-ounce work of art. Estate price is $6,000.00 CAD. Stock #e13087.

We love versatile pieces that can lend themselves to any occasion or be worn in multiple ways for more personalized expression. But we have never encountered anything as versatile as this expanding lattice piece; compressing from a digit dominating ring to a brightly shining bangle. The ring can be almost any finger size, starting around a size 5, but it does need to be worn mindfully as there is no mechanism to stop it from expanding during wear. As a bangle, it expands to slip over almost any hand, you can choose to wear it loose or compress it tight against your wrist or forearm. In its tightest position, it measures 17mm wide, and at its loosest 8.15mm. The hours of labor that went into creating this 10 karat piece are mind-boggling! Each section is made up of four identical faceted leaves and four domed rivets that allow the sections to expand and contract. At 8.5 grams the piece is well made and ready for any occasion.

An ever so slightly more decorative version of the traditional marine link, mixing things up with two bars per link instead of one. Yes, it’s a bold move but fashion is for the brave. If you’re feeling up to the challenge this 9.1mm wide by 8 1/2 inch long bracelet is quite the statement. Partially due to its white gold nature, a rarely encountered gold colour in heavy gents pieces. Too bad as the contemporary tone stands out more during wear. This piece is solidly constructed from 32.1 grams of 14 karat white gold that retains most of its original chromy rhodium finish. The clasp is a sleek hinged lobster clasp that locks into a sturdy stylized end cap. Estate price for this like new piece is $2,380.00 CAD. Stock #e13222.

There’s more to purchasing a gold bangle than pure aesthetics. Next to rings, bracelets take the most abuse of any piece of jewellery meaning they need to be robust. At 10.6 grams this 14 karat yellow gold bangle is more than ready for daily wear. The heavy hinge, extra strong white gold plunger clasp, and safety lock are up to the task of securing this hefty bangle. The shape is also a consideration as a well fitting oval bangle will not roll around the wrist, ensuring the diamonds that decorate the top are always visible. The 0.36 carats of I1-I round brilliant cut diamonds are protectively channel set with individual supportive seats encircling each pavilion.

The unique optical effects of baguette cut diamonds lend themselves surprisingly well to a tennis bracelet; at the slightest movement of the wrist each diamond light up in a bright flash of white light. The 175 hand-set diamonds equal an estimated 2.00 carats together of I1-I2-J quality. The 5 diamond rows are separated by decorative and protective bars of curving high polished yellow gold.

Identification jewellery has been extremely popular over the last few years in both new and estate/vintage jewellery. Our estate signet ring collection practically sold out over this past Christmas. Rings are often found in our displays, but we don’t see many ID bracelets come through our estate department. When we do see them they have been worn for a lifetime and display too much wear in the link joints. Our latest estate ID bracelet looks like new. There is no wear on any of the Figaro links or hinged connecting links. The ID plate has never even been engraved. It is made from 18.7 grams of upgraded 14 karat yellow gold.

10kt. 1.85ct. I1-I2-IJ diamond tennis bracelet 12.1gr. $1,400.00 CAD. e12441

Like earrings, the diamonds in tennis bracelets can often get away with being lower quality than those meant to center a ring. They undergo less up-close scrutiny so all that really matters is how much they sparkle. The 1.85 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds in this bracelet are certainly I1-I2-IJ quality but their inclusions are a collection of evenly spaced small included crystals. What Instagram and Pinterest would call galaxy diamonds, the inclusions give each a silvery colour that almost blends into the white gold. At a glance, all you see is their brilliance hidden in the brightly rhodium-enhanced X and O pattern of this 12.1 gram 10 karat bracelet. The wider bracelet is impressive enough to be worn on its own or as the centerpiece to a layered look. It measures 7 inches long and is secured with a hidden plunger clasp and heavyweight safety lock. Estate price $1,400.00 CAD. Stock #e12441.

22kt. 3.4mm wide bangle bracelet 14.2gr. $1,400.00 CAD. e13758

22 karat is worth its weight in gold, literally, thanks to its 91.7% purity. That high purity means you aren’t paying for the alloy metals you find in the lower karats common in North American and European jewellery. It also ensures maximum value retention. Where most lower karat pieces carry their cost in manufacturing hours, higher karats carry it mostly in their weight. So much so that many Asian and Middle Eastern countries sell their gold jewellery based on gram weight instead of a ticket price. This bangle, for example, we’ve only allotted $450.00 for the man hours that went into producing the piece. Everything else is the pure refinable gold value. Meaning if you ran this bangle over with a train and it was irreparable it would still contain $958.00 in just its gold value (as of Sept. 14, 2021, $2,290.00 CAD gold price). The 3.4mm heavily patterned bangle weighs in at 14.2 grams and is estate priced for $1,400.00 CAD. Stock #e13758.

We’ll leave it to David Yurman to best describe their Waves collection; “Ocean waves are one of the most awe-inspiring natural forces. Combining energy, power, ferocity, and beauty, they have captivated artists for centuries. The Waves Collection is inspired by the wood-block prints of the Japanese artist Hokusai, and by ornate carvings found on the tsubas—or hand guards—of 18th century samurai swords.” The Waves Dagger Bracelet is an example of the latter and is currently available new from David Yurman for $1,050.00 CAD. Made from antiqued sterling silver and set with 0.42 carats total weight of black diamonds. The bracelet is certainly statement-making.

14kt. Cartier style bracelet/necklace 51.7gr. tw. $1,200.00 & $2,700.00 CAD. e14366 e14365

You’ve certainly seen this link style before, especially if you follow our blog, but you may not know the history behind it. This link originated from Cartier (of course) and was part of their exploration into their Panthere line. The link is called Maillon Panthere and is described by the jewellery house as meant to “sensually wrap around the hand, wrist or “décolleté” in a voluptuous feline fashion.”.

10 karat gold coloured stone bracelet 8.6 grams $490.00 CAD. e12361

If you’ve never encountered one of these fantastic multi gemstone bracelets you’ve obviously never been into our store. We happily have about one or two to showcase at any given time. Each is distinctly different from the one before. This example has the added symbolism of the Hugs & Kisses X and O pattern, a style you mostly see captured in diamond bracelets. The oval brilliant cut gems are all natural with the peridot showing the lily pad inclusions they are famous for. Pale amethyst, sky blue topaz, and citrine help to keep that sunny pallet alive. The three deep red garnets punctuate the bracelet with their brooding earthy tone. The open wirework X’s keep the bracelet focused on the gemstones and add to the airy feminine feel. Meant for a petite wrist at 7 inches long the 10 karat bracelet is secured with an integrated box catch and added safety lock. Some of the softer gemstones display minor signs of wear and tear in the form of scuffs and scratches. The bracelet itself is in excellent condition showing little to no wear in any of its many movable jointed links. Estate price $490.00 CAD. Stock #e12361.

Once you know the bracelet was made in the 1960s you can see the era’s sensibilities in the soft curves of the design.

Vintage hollow 19mm hand engraved hinged bangle bracelet $140.00 CAD. e14071

You’ve probably seen some version of this bangle in your grandmother’s jewellery box or the showcases of antique stores. Maybe not as shiny as this one, more likely blackened with tarnish and time. These hand-engraved jumbo bangles were a popular accessory for decades. Popularized after the technologies of the industrial revolution spread into jewellery making. Bangles like these would have been rolled through hand-cranked, and later, automatic bangle rollers, that curve the metal while bending into a half circle to fit the wrist. The convex top and flat interiors would be joined in large batches, then they’d move to banks of jeweller’s benches for hinging, clasp installation, and patterning. These jewellery manufacturing warehouses really got their start in the 1920s as the financial boom increased demand for affordable luxury. Bench jewellers couldn’t keep up and assembly-line techniques were needed to meet the demand. This 19mm bangle is in great shape, showing only minor scratches from a lifetime of wear. The 28.3 gram sterling silver bangle is equipped with an additional safety chain that was likely added after it was purchased. Estate price for this vintage piece $140.00 CAD. Stock #e14071.

David Yurman brought it back to the foreground but cable accents have been popular for decades. The recurring industrial accent adds an edge to any piece.

Yes, those are air quotes, this is NOT an 18 karat gold Cartier Love bracelet but it doesn’t cost $8,550.00 either. Cartier’s Love bracelet was designed by Aldo Cipullo in 1969. It was his intention to make a symbol for being “locked in love”. The idea that the bracelet is easier to remove with the assistance of someone else was meant to be a subtle nod to the commitment and the permanence of a loving relationship. As with anything a big design house like Cartier does, the bracelet has sparked countless “homages”. This particular bracelet is closer to the real thing than we’ve had before as it actually screws together. The 10 karat rose gold bangle measures 6.5mm wide and weighs an impressive 27.5 grams. Unlike the original, ours does not come with a screwdriver, so you best check your tool kit before purchasing this bangle. Estate price $1,540.00 CAD. Stock #e13994.

14kt. 1.88ct. tw. I1-I2- KL diamond tennis bracelet 12.7gr. $2,100.00 CAD. e13964

The S-link tennis bracelet is a vintage staple for good reason. From a practical standpoint, the yellow gold S accents stand as raised protection for the prongs that hold the diamonds in place. But from a visual perspective, they add presence to the bracelet that it wouldn’t have as a classic line bracelet. The curving ends of each golden scroll bring the bracelet’s width to 5mm. Their almost matte surfaces also create the perfect counterpoint for the bright sparkle of the 47 round brilliant cut diamonds. Together the I1-I2-KL diamonds equal a conservative weight estimate of 1.88 carats. With the help of the “S” sections, the diamonds span the entire 7 1/4 inches and are fastened with a hidden, button release plunger clasp with an additional safety lock. The bracelet weighs in at 12.7 grams of 14 karat yellow gold. Estate price $2100.00 CAD. Stock #e13964.

Solar 14kt. gold diamond cocktail watch 0.20ct. tw. 13gr. $1,250.00 CAD. e11547

By strict definition I suppose this is a watch but let’s face it, it’s really more of a diamond bracelet. Constructed from just shy of 13 grams (net weight) of 14 karat gold and covered with 40 nice little round single cut diamonds. From that description alone you’d think we’re talking about a tennis bracelet, not a watch. Solar was an Eaton’s department store house brand that utilized high-quality movements made by other manufacturers. Eaton’s carried some pretty high-end products; some of their watches contained movements made by Rolex. The hand-wind movement in this watch is a more than capable 17 jewel incabloc shock protected mechanism made by Ardath Switzerland. It’s running well and keeping good time. The case and bracelet have been as skillfully manufactured as well as any fine piece of jewellery. In fact, I’d say this watch is made better than most jewellery items. Think of all the individual components that had to be combined and hand adjusted in order to make everything work together. Each link is tightly hinged, the diamonds are expertly bead set, a beautifully hand-engraved case back snugly fits the timepiece and snaps together with a precise interference friction fit. The locking buckle is double safety protected with an inner folding clasp plus a safety chain. A bit overkill perhaps, but better too much security than not enough. For a watch that is over 60 years of age, the condition is excellent. There is no sag, slack, or stretch in any of the links. The silver dial is close to perfect with only a few slight blemishes that go unnoticed except under extreme scrutiny. If you have a slender wrist and love jewellery why not try out this diamond bracelet that also tells time. The vintage look is in and cocktail watches in this type of condition are seldom seen. Including a one-year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers warranty, the watch is estate priced at $1,250.00 CAD. Stock #e11547.

14kt. flat link mesh bracelet 7.5mm wide, 7 3/4″, 16.8gr. $1,100.00 CAD. e13909

There is something very luxurious about woven gold. The heft combined with silky flexibility and the rolling flashes as light catches on each petite link reminds one of draped fabric. This 7.5mm wide golden textile has been painstakingly woven from 16.8 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold. The 7 3/4 inch long bracelet is given almost a lace-like appearance thanks to the delicate rivets that hold each link to the next. The bracelet is secured with a hidden box catch, safety lock, and safety chain for extra peace of mind. Estate price $1,100.00 CAD. Stock #e13909.

0.50ct. tw. SI-I-J diamond bracelet, 12.1gr. 14kt. white gold $1,470.00 CAD. e13899

A whimsical diamond bangle bracelet that flows gracefully across the wrist. The split top maximizes the footprint of the bangle while allowing it to appear light and airy. The bridges that connect the bar set diamonds into pairs, are meant for more than just aesthetics. Those solid bars prevent the two sections of the bangle from catching and being deformed. The thoughtful attention to detail doesn’t end there, the bangle has been made oval for a comfortable fit on the wrist and prevents it from turning over during wear. Good thing too, as the 0.50 carats total weight of round brilliant cut diamonds are not something you’d want to miss. The eight SI-I-J quality diamonds shine brightly between their high polished bars of rhodium enhanced 14 karat white gold.  The bangle weighs 12.1 grams and comes equipped with a hidden hinge and button release box catch backed up by two safety locks. Estate price $1,470.00 CAD. Stock #e13899.

8mm 10 karat gold bangle bracelet 8.7gr. $350.00 CAD. e13459

I tried several times to take pictures of this bangle to give an idea of perspective and scale. Even photographed with a standard size pencil does not really represent how much bigger it appears in person. Its 8mm width is quite substantial, especially considering the smaller size of 20.7cm circumference. The bangle is in perfect condition and weighs 8.7 grams. It may be difficult to imagine the actual size, but it is easy to realize the value once you consider it contains over $275.00 in just gold content. We have other bangles in stock with similar values that are not on our website. This bangle is estate priced at $350.00 CAD. Stock #e13459.

22 karat gold solid link bracelet 47.3 grams, 7 1/4 inches $4,050.00 CAD. e12796

To the Western eye, 22 karat gold looks like costume jewellery because of its vivid, bright yellow colour. Too much of the world our 14 karat and 10 karat gold is considered costume jewellery because it has been alloyed down so much. 10 karat gold actually contains more fine silver than fine gold. If you want to try on another culture this is a good place to start! The solid construction of this 7 1/4 inch link bracelet gives the perfect introduction to the charms of nearly pure gold (91.6%). The heft of its 47.3 grams will surprise you. That heft is thanks to the high density of 22 karat gold, it’s actually 2.25 times denser than stainless steel. Its bulk is secured to the wrist with an integrated box catch and two safety locks. The bracelet almost glows its warmth is so intense! It’s been priced at just 14% more than the actual value of pure gold it contains (as of July 23, 2020) at only $4,050.00 CAD. Stock #e12796.

14 karat hinged bracelet Uno Aerre Italy 11.1 grams $945.00 CAD. e12445

I’m sure you’ve heard us sing UNOAERRE’s praises before but we really can’t help it. The Italian gold masters go above and beyond their competition, setting the standard for high end production jewellery. This example is in perfect, unworn condition with its 4.85mm tubing in the original factory ribbed finish. The hinge is so nearly seamless that when closed it almost disappears. The strong box catch is released by a decorative low profile rim which is protected from accidental release by the opposite rim it mates to. Really the only thing that breaks up the sleek and understated surface of the bangle is the strong and necessary safety lock. Though hollow, the 11.1 gram 14 karat yellow gold bangle is a heavy gauge for durability. The 7 inch inside circumference should comfortably fit the average lady’s wrist.

I’m sure we’ve sold 1000s of gold bracelets since our business was established over 61 years ago, but this is the first one like this. A standard curb link bracelet usually consists of links that are basically round, oval, or squarish in outline. Sometimes they’re slightly rectangular but we’ve never had one with big open links as rectangular as this. The bracelet consists of just 10 links yet measures 8 inches and 9mm wide. Each of the links is close to 3 times as long as they are wide resulting in a look you just don’t see very often. It’s light and airy looking yet still weighs a significant 19.4 grams of 10 karat yellow gold. The bracelet is secured by an integrated open link catch with a side safety clasp.

Sterling silver bracelet, ring & earring set 58 grams $280.00 CAD. e14015

We don’t usually showcase silver pieces in our estate department. We feel it is the domain of artisan jewellers, so we leave that medium to the many talented craftspeople in the area. But occasionally a piece comes along (or in this case a set) that we can’t pass up! This suite of curving matte-finished pieces is not only striking but also very well built. Each is sturdy enough to stand up to daily wear, an important consideration with sterling silver as it is the softest of the precious metals. The earrings feature strong posts and sleek hinged backs that lock tightly into place. The bangle has a unique hinged opening that covers only the bottom quarter of the piece. Ensuring it won’t show during wear and making it very difficult to lose if the clasp gets pulled open. Though pulling it open would be a feat at the catch is held securely in place by strong tension and is backed up with a safety lock. The 58-gram set is also eye-catching for its large scale, with the bangle measuring 11.4mm wide, the earrings 6.7mm, and the ring 8.3mm. The ring is a size 9 but can be adjusted up or down a size or two. Estate price for the set only $280.00 CAD. Stock #e14015.

Diamond bracelet 0.41ct. tw. I1-I 20.9gr. 14kt. $1,610.00 CAD. e10750

High quality bracelets are always popular estate items with our customers in both men’s and ladies styles. We tend to receive way more rings than any other type of jewellery. It’s refreshing to see a nice bracelet like this one show up from time to time. From the moment you pick it up the quality is easy to feel. At over 20 grams in 14 karat gold, this is no light weight item that was built on a tight 10 karat budget. Each of the links is individually cast and secured by a heavy gauge solid pin. This bracelet was designed to last for a lifetime if regularly cleaned. If you don’t clean your flexible jointed jewellery items the dirt wears away the moving parts leading to prematurely worn joints and hinges. Most jewellers don’t charge to quickly clean your bracelets and necklaces. Take advantage of this service, your pieces will last much longer and look better too. This bracelet contains 22 round brilliant cut diamonds bead and bezel set in the centre fancy link sections. The I1-I quality diamonds offer a good sparkle from the estimated 0.41 carats of estimated total weight. At 7 1/2 inches in length, the bracelet is a little longer than most. If you happen to have a smaller wrist, our onsite goldsmiths can adjust it accordingly. Excellent condition showing no wear in any links. Secured by a plunger type clasp with side safety catch for some extra security. Estate priced at $1,610.00 CAD. Stock #e10750.

18 karat VEZZARO hinged bracelet 21.2gr. $2,310.00 CAD. e13710

If you’ve never heard of Italian jewellery house Vezzaro this is all the introduction you’ll need. This granular, faceted mesh is the theme of their entire collection.  Although looking at their website it appears they now only manufacture in sterling silver with rose or yellow gold plating along with rhodium and natural finish, but we assure you this one is 18 karat gold through and through. Perhaps with the current price of gold they’ve decided to move into a more popular price point market. Fitting that their tagline is “jewelry made of light” as this unique mesh twinkles delicately at the slightest movement. The beads are backed by a heavy gauge 18 karat yellow gold bangle, adding durability to their dazzle. The bangle itself is made to high Italian standards, with a heavy three-piece rivet and oversized double locking white gold box catch. As proof of quality, the bangle weighs in at 21.2 grams and shows only minor scuffs from light wear. Estate price $2,310.00 CAD. Stock #e13710.

14kt. “Cartier” link diamond necklace & bracelet 0.66ct. tw. SI-I 57.3gr. $3,575.00 CAD. e12606

Cartier is the surprising origin for many classic jewellery items you probably never think of. This link style had its start in 1914 as a solid gold Cartier watch designed by Louis Cartier himself. The Maillon Panthere link was later translated into bracelets, neckpieces, and rings. The link is actually still a staple of Cartier’s offering and is described by them as inspired by the panther’s “precious and supple movements” meant to “adorn the neck or wrist with sensuality.” Our estate necklace and bracelet combo take only its inspiration from the Cartier classic, taking care to vary just enough from the original design to have a unique identity. Despite being an homage, the pair have been made with Cartier quality in mind in 14 karat gold instead of Cartier’s 18 karat preference. The set is made from an impressive 57.3 grams of yellow and white gold, a testament to its well-made nature. For added flair, the pair has been hand set with 0.66 combined carats of petite SI-I round brilliant cut diamonds. The necklace measures 16 1/4 inches long and the bracelet 7 1/4 inches long. Both are 8mm wide and come equipped with hidden box catches and additional safety locks. The entry-level 18 karat all gold 7mm wide Cartier bracelet is available on their website for $8,350.00 CAD for the bracelet only without any diamonds.

22 karat 18 inch curb link necklace and bracelet. Gold value only plus 15%. e13799 e13800

 Many cultures don’t even consider standard North American 10 karat gold to be gold. When you think of it, it makes sense. When you buy 10 karat gold you’re actually buying more alloy than gold as 10 karat contains only 41.7% actual gold. This 22 karat curb link necklace and bracelet are 22 karat. 22 karat raises the gold content to 91.7%. With the higher purity comes a richer colour that closely matches the natural colour of pure 24 karat gold. Far better resistance to corrosion and chemical attack means the joints are not going to suffer from weakening over time, and there is something very satisfying when you experience the added heft with high karat gold. These two items are both of solid construction. The 18 inch, 6.6mm wide, curb link necklace weighs in at 60.3 grams, and the 7 1/4 inch, 8.5mm wide bracelet weighs 45.3 grams. You’ll not find a more affordable way to purchase gold jewellery than the estate prices for these. We are pricing them simply by calculating the actual gold value plus 15%. At current gold values around $2,300.00 per ounce Canadian, these items are selling for around $4,700.00 and $3,500.00 CAD. This price can change by the minute but whatever the commodity price these pieces are beautiful and will always be worth their weight in gold. Both are equipped with plunger styles clasps and side safety clasps. Both are in perfect unworn condition. Stock #e13799 and e13800.

The oversized oval links on this example were built stronger than your average piece as they were designed to stand against tugs and catches. Even in warm 18 karat yellow gold the sleek bracelets manage to look modern and with their geometric motif. This example measures a nice 7 3/4 inches long and is secured by a concealed white gold box catch with an additional safety lock.

14kt. Tiger’s eye necklace & bracelet set 28 inch total length, 19.7gr. $1,260.00 CAD. e13642

Tigers eye is classified as a phenomenal gemstone because of its unique optical property of chatoyancy. The rolling line of shining light (think a Felix the Cat clock) is most obvious when the gem is cut as a cabochon, where the cat’s eye property is more literal looking. In these custom cut oval links the chatoyancy has been contained on the outward facing sides of each bead, making it most effectively seen when being worn. The brown colour and almost gold coloured flash of tigers eye make it a perfect partner for warm 14 karat yellow gold. The statement necklace and bracelet feature two different hollow constructed gold links; one a high polished oval to mimic the tiger’s eye shape, the other a faceted round link that twinkles at the slightest movement. The set can be worn together at 28 inches or apart as an 8 inch bracelet and 20 inch necklace. Each is secured with a sturdy lobster clasp and are sold as a set only for the estate price of $1,260.00 CAD. Stock #e13642.

As you’d expect of the Italian master goldsmiths the bracelet is made to that coveted wear-it-and-forget-about-it quality. Everything about it is solid and sturdy, weighing in at an appropriately heavy 31.5 grams of 10 karat gold. Suitable for a gentle man with an average sized wrist or any lady. The brilliant bracelet measures a longer 8 1/2 inches and is estate priced for $1,960.00 CAD. Stock #e11591.

The X & O theme may be subtle but the hugs and kisses sentiment will be obvious with this cute starter diamond tennis bracelet. The 33 small diamonds may only add up to 1/4 of a carat in estimated weight and the quality is a modest I2-J but they do an admirable job twinkling between the X shaped links.

14kt. hinged bangle bracelet 10mm wide 24.7gr. linen finish $1,750.00 CAD. e12711

I’ve not encountered a linen texture captured in gold before but it is quite decadent. From its organic, free flowing nature you can easily tell it was hand applied instead of machine applied. The soft matte finish of the linen finish has been shouldered with narrow rows of high polished faceting for contrast. Even the inside of the bangle has been decorated with subtle embossed chevrons on either side of the catch. The 10mm wide bangle is of course hollow but it has been constructed of a sturdy gauge sheet as evident from its 24.7 gram weight. Everything about it is warm 14 karat yellow gold except the tongue of the box catch which is extra strong white gold. For added security, a sturdy safety chain has also been installed. The bangle is a good size for most women’s wrists and is in like new condition. A beautiful piece of like new vintage jewellery priced at $1,750.00 CAD. Stock #e12711.

2.25ct. tw. sapphire & diamond bracelet 13.4gr. 14kt. never worn $1,540.00 CAD. e12889

Nothing sets off the vibrant regal blue of sapphires like chrome white gold and icy diamonds. The combination hasn’t fallen out of fashion since the very early 1900s when the invention of the oxyacetylene torch made platinum a workable medium for goldsmiths (white gold wasn’t invented until the 1920s). Our current example of that blue and white combo is a never-worn 13.4 gram 14 karat bracelet. The piece displays a repeating pattern of soft marquises. The bright blue sapphires are bracketed by four petite marquise-shaped settings each handset with two tiny round diamonds. They are then balanced by a larger high polished domed marquise adding a glossy contrast to the sapphires’ brilliant cobalt flashes. The combination of gems equals about 2.25 carats all told. The piece is secured with a hidden box catch and additional safety lock. As a testament to its newness, the entire bracelet retains its original chrome white rhodium finish.

10kt. hinged diamond bracelet 0.25ct. tw. 10.9 grams $700.00 CAD. e12363

Diamond tennis bracelets are a timeless jewellery staple but they require more care than most people think. With many moving parts there are a lot of places for the bracelet to wear. All of those joints need to be meticulously cleaned every once in a while to ensure you get as much life out of the piece as possible. They also need to be worn mindfully to make sure they don’t catch on anything as a good tug will stress the joints too. If you know yourself well enough to be thinking “that doesn’t sounds like something that is going to work for me” then a diamond bangle is what you want. Something as sturdy as this 10.9 gram 10 karat yellow gold will hold up well against daily wear. As it only has three moving joints there is much less maintenance required. It also provides the added bonus of being a unique statement that stands apart from the diamond line bracelets you see everywhere. With its swirling wave motif patterned with 0.25 carats of bright single cut diamonds backed in bead set chromy rhodium. The bracelet is secured with an integrated box catch and added safety lock.

Why settle for paying the same or more for basic 10 karat gold when you can have a premium 18 karat piece like this. All of our estate gold necklaces and bracelets are in excellent or new condition. Being the go to source for estate jewellery, we see a lot of gold chains and bracelets; unfortunately much of what we see is nice but not nice enough for our estate department.

3.75ct. tw. I1-KL diamond tennis bracelet 14kt. gold 17.1gr. 8″ $3,724.00 CAD. e10690

Lady’s bracelets are usually 7 inches long and men’s are made 9 inches long. That’s just how it is. Unfortunately not everyone has the same sized wrists. While 7 inches may fit the majority of ladies pretty well, it may not work for you. If you require a smaller size, it’s usually an easy task to remove a link or two. If you need a slightly larger size it can become a little more complicated. Quite often special order modifications on production jewellery is impossible, when the cost is quite a bit more and it can take a long time. If your wrist is slightly larger than average this bracelet should easily fit you. It’s just over 8 inches in length and is proportionately fitted with a conservatively estimated 3.75 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds. The 44 diamonds average SI2 to I1 clarity with a KL colour range. The bracelet is in like new condition showing no wear in the joints or any stretch; it could easily pass for never worn. Its quality can instantly be recognized from the second you pick it up. At 17.1    grams total weight this will never be confused with a super light 10 karat budget built example. If you love this bracelet and have a standard 7 inch or smaller wrist, our onsite goldsmiths can easily remove a few links for you. Comes complete with our Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers presentation gift box. Estate priced at $3,724.00 CAD. Stock #e10690.

All are done in brightly rhodium enhanced 10 karat white gold keeping an uber modern feel. The 8 inch length is a statement making 13mm wide.

18kt. genuine gem bracelet 18.8gr. $1,610.00 CAD. e11938

A unique array of natural gemstones is the answer to all of your colour needs! You could hardly ask for a more varied pallet. Thankfully the designer had a deep understanding of complementary colours. They used the softer tones of green quartz and amethyst to work up to the intense forest green tourmaline. The center piece is a vibrant pink tourmaline which instantly drops into the light pastel blue of aquamarine. Then the bracelet warms up into soft yellow citrine, finishing on inky blood red garnet. All on the backdrop of 18 karat rose gold the calmest of golds colours, blending into the skin tone and allowing the gems to hold center stage. The rich 18.8 gram bracelet is equipped with an ingeniously integrated box catch and extra safety lock. Despite the septuplet of gems being the star of this 6 3/4 inch long bracelet they’ve not been taken into account for pricing. We’ve valued it only as if it was a high quality bracelet containing no gems at all. They are something like a gift with purchase at the estate price of $1,610.00 CAD. Stock number e11938.

10kt. 0.80ct. tw. I1 fancy brown diamond station bracelet 1.4gr. $560.00 CAD. e13368

Diamond station necklaces and bracelets are having a bit of a moment. Well they’ve been having a moment for the last 10 years. Their understated staple fits perfectly into the styles being marketed to “the female self purchaser”. A demographic that seems to be currently characterized by a love of yellow gold, layering, and geometric, repeating patters (if Mejuri has anything to say about it). This particular 10 karat yellow gold station chain certainly hits understated on the nose with its 0.80 combined carat weight of I1-Fancy Brown round brilliant cut diamonds. The use of yellow gold allows the eight diamonds to add subtle sparkle as the diamonds travel around the wrist. The cable chain is secured with a sturdy lobster catch and weighs in at a petite 1.4 grams. Estate price $560.00 CAD. Stock #e13368.

22 karat gold bangle bracelet 19.2 grams, 5.7mm wide $1,460.00 CAD. e12389

Had to put on our linguist hat for this one as the hallmarks are not English and there was no numerical carat stamp. We were sure it was 22 karat from our gold tests and the heft and colour of the bangle. That points automatically to the Middle East, Asia, and some areas in Africa. After some careful alphabet comparison we found the markings to be modern Arabic. Considering there are 25 countries that list Arabic as their official language that really didn’t help us pin point a country of origin. But we can be sure it came from somewhere in the Middle East or the Northern part of Africa. Most Eastern cultures don’t even recognize a piece of jewellery as being gold if it is below 18 karat or 75% purity. To North American and most Western cultures the warm 22 karat looks more like costume jewellery, especially because they don’t skimp on the manufacturing. This 5.7mm wide bangle weighs in at 19.2 grams yielding a gold content value alone of $1257.46 (pure gold priced at $2222.00 CAD per ounce). We’ve only allotted $202.54 for the cost of the beautiful craftsmanship that went into the bangle. Estate price $1,280.00 CAD. Stock #e12389.

18kt. two tone hollow fancy link bracelet 25.9gr. $1,980.00 CAD. e11039

This is a bracelet you have to try on to understand the cleverness of its maker. The relatively simple intertwined link bracelet has built two looks into one by using white and yellow gold links. Fasten the bracelet with the catch facing left and rhodium plated white gold dominates with a strip of warm yellow running down its center. Fasten it with the catch facing right and warm yellow is the theme, subtly accented with a bright white center. The thoughtfully simple design is hollow in construction but still weighs an impressive 25.9 grams.

Effy describes this bracelet on Macy’s website as Velvet Blue. In person that descriptor is very accurate as almost all of the 28 sapphires display a combination of delicate silk inclusions or distinct colour banding. Without magnification the effect is a plush softness layered over deep royal blue. It helps that they are using our favorite combination of icy white diamonds and rhodium enhanced white gold contrasted with intense blues. The diamonds here are 0.25 carats total weight of round single cuts set in pairs next to each oval sapphire.

Like gold? You can enjoy the feel of 87% pure gold (21 karat) with this estate bangle from the Middle East for the same price as 41% pure 10 karat gold. Higher karat gold is way more dense, has a richer colour, resists oxidation, cracking, chemical attack plus it just looks better. The majority of the world doesn’t even accept our domestic 10 karat and 14 karat as real gold because it is alloyed with so much silver. Did you know that when you’re buying 10 karat gold you’re actually buying more silver than actual gold. This simple elegant bangle bracelet is just 3.0mm wide but it measures close to 1.5mm thick giving it great strength. The coin edged pattern and diamond cut stripe running the entire circumference gives the bangle a long lasting protective finish that catches the light from every angle. At current gold prices ($1725.00 CAD pr oz.) this bangle contains around $660.00 CAD in pure gold.

14kt. hinged bangle bracelet 7.2mm rope design 31.3gr. $2,310.00 CAD. e13213

Even the most avid bangle detractor will be won over by this heavy hitter. The ellipse shape, though rarely encountered is the best option available. Firstly, because it hugs the wrist closely it is less likely to catch or dent. It also travels less on the wrist, staying close to the hand, keeping it visible with most sleeve types. The puffy rope inspired twist measures 7.2mm in diameter making quite the statement during wear. The bangle is tightly hinged, the seam almost disappearing when closed. The catch release is a secret button leading to a tongue catch made from white gold for extra tensile strength. The catch snaps securely closed allowing for peace of mind during wear. All told the bangle weighs in at 31.3 grams in 14 karat yellow gold, showing only two mild scuffs as proof of its durability. Estate price $2,310.00 CAD. Stock #e13213.

A concern of any bracelet wearer is mysterious disappearance. Especially this time of year when we’re constantly taking off and putting on layers.

On top of the self closing mechanism, the bangle has an added safety lock. All of the innovative security is hidden behind a modern and understated exterior of high polished 10 karat white gold. The bangle is a generous 4mm wide; its squared/oval outline make for a comfortable close to the wrist fit that is less likely to get in the way. Although hollow the bangle still pulls off a 10.6 gram weight. Excellent condition showing no dents or dings of any kind. $630.00 CAD. Stock #e13042.

Natural gold in quartz matrix is probably not something you’ve encountered before but from a geological standpoint it is very common.

Not all are viable sources for mining but when the vein is significant like these they make fantastic gem and geology samples, or unique accents in a one of a kind bracelet! The 6 hand cut quartz make a billowy translucent backdrop for the dendritic layers of natural 24 karat gold. Each is entirely unique and becomes a peaceful meditation as you stare into their detailed depths. The 14 karat yellow gold bracelet is itself handmade which us almost never encountered. The piece measures a standard ladies 7 1/2 inches long. To guard against its 26 gram heft it has been equipped with a fold over catch with an additional safety lock plus a clasping safety chain.

Art Deco diamond & black enamel bracelet 0.40ct. TW. VS-FG 14kt. 18.2gr. $2,100.00 CAD. e12274

The Art Deco period is most famous for the architecture that was produced. Think the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building in New York City, or the Rockefeller Plaza, and the Eastern Columbia Building in LA. The theme with Art Deco anything is strong geometric figures often with bold contrasting lacquered finishes. In delicate jewellery pieces that theme is often a more gentle interpretation but not with this bracelet. It is solidly constructed from geometric links covered in faceted patterns. For the lacquer we have black enamel making a punch of contrast around the diamonds they frame. The 0.40 carats are antique old European cuts of very high VS-FG quality. Their presence makes the 18.2 gram heirloom bracelet equally suited for the office or an evening out. Two of the enamel frames are missing slivers of black but other than that the 90 year old bracelet is in like new condition! Estate price $2,100.00 CAD. Stock #e12274.

David Yurman diamond heart charm bracelet sterling silver $570.00 CAD. e12835

David Yurman is always a name we are happy to showcase! The chunky silver patterned with industrial inspired cable links is a statement in itself. Add to that the brand’s passion for over-sized accents and you’ve got a line that is instantly identifiable. This retired bracelet is a precursor to the current Cable Cookie line.

Cartier 6mm vintage Trinity bangle bracelet 81.8gr. 18kt. circa 1985 with papers $9,660.00 CAD. e12805

We’ve had a couple of pieces from the Trinity collection but this is certainly the most impressive of the lot. The Large Trinity Bracelet has been retired from current production and is no longer available; perhaps it has something to do with the price of gold closing in on $2,000.00 per ounce (Canadian). This vintage bangle bracelet set was purchased June 1985 from a Canadian authorized agent when gold was less than $500.00 per oz. Each solid 18 karat half dome bangle measures 6mm wide by 1.9mm thick. The Trinity was designed by Louis Cartier in 1924, each of the white, rose, and yellow gold bangles represent love, fidelity, and friendship. As Cartier describes it “A timeless testament to life’s most memorable loves”. Our bangle is in like new condition, weighs 81.8 grams and is accompanied by original certificate and appraisal.

e10260 18 karat white gold bangle bracelet 002A large portion of our estate blog speaks to faceted stones and their ability to bend and manipulate light in unique and mesmerizing ways. What we’ve not discussed is the interesting optical effects that gold can have when polished and expertly engraved. There is no better example of those effects than in this 24.1 gram 18 karat white gold bangle that displays three different patterns. Each equally striking; rolling, curling and breaking up the light to give the impression of constant whirling motion. The features are created by thousands of microscopically etched parallel groves. To really take in the effects of precision patterned gold and to truly appreciate the very high quality of this bangle you must see it in person. It’s secured by the best bangle closure we’ve encountered, under so much tension it has no real use for the button release box catch it’s been equipped with. You just may need a friend to help you get the bangle on. Measuring a stand alone 10.0mm wide by 3.8mm thick the hefty bangle is in next to new condition, retaining its bright rhodium finish.

A woven bracelet offers many advantages over a traditional bangle not the least of which is aesthetic. The pattern is woven here with bright rhodium enhanced 14 karat white gold. The ribbed texture adds a unique radial shine making the bracelet reflect light like silk. The weave is also very flexible and surprisingly strong, a combination that creates durability you wouldn’t expect. During wear it glances off blows, flexing and bending out of the way of scratches and dents. That is not to say the bracelet is indestructible but a hollow bangle of the same 13.8 gram weight would not fare as well. To complete its durability the bracelet has been equipped with heavyweight end caps. The bulky lobster clasp is attached on a ball joint allowing it to flex and rotate freely during wear. The unique bracelet has been decorated with fixed ‘beads’ set with 0.50 carats of bright I1-J round brilliant cut diamonds. The oval shape means the bracelet should always face diamonds up.

10kt. diamond & sapphire bangle bracelet 8.0gr. $420.00 CAD. e12355

The key to getting a great price on a piece of jewellery is to understand the value of the components. Even knowing how much actual gold value 8 grams of 10 karat contains helps clarify the mysterious world of retail jewellery prices. The actual value of gold in this bracelet is $216.00. Manufacturing the raw material into a usable product is where much of the costs are. For something relatively simple like this perhaps 3 or 4 times the intrinsic metal value should represent good value. This ratio will cover the alloys, labour, markups and other manufacturing costs of business. Smaller sapphires and diamonds, even if good quality like these, if not used in big numbers really don’t add too much. Considering this bracelet is offered at less that 2 times the metallic value represents amazing value. This bracelet is in perfect condition showing no wear of any kind.

A diamond tennis bracelet even when made inexpensively, is still one of the more expensive jewellery staples to buy. And they are unfortunately mostly made as cheaply as possible in order to maintain a popular price point. Most are made from 10 or maybe 14 karat gold at best and manufactured so light they can’t withstand more than a few years of use before the joints show significant wear. The diamonds are usually of very low quality, often I2-I3 making them dull and lifeless looking. They are often very small stones gathered in clusters or set into bright cut settings to mimic the look of larger single stones. All of this is an effort to create a false sense of value, cutting corners to reduce price points. That was not the practice in this premium 18 karat gold bracelet. From a manufacturing standpoint it has been built to last a lifetime with extra strong joints and sturdy basket settings. Keep it clean and you’ll be passing this one on to the next generation. The settings are a unique three prong style with faceted bases that flash brightly when viewed from the side. Each holds one well cut 0.11 carat round brilliant diamond of high SI-H quality. Together the diamonds total an impressive 5.00 carats estimated weight. All 7 inches of the bracelet are set on fire with the slightest movement. The 13.8 gram weight speaks for itself and comes secured by a hidden plunger clasp and additional safety lock. The bracelet is in brand new condition with all chromy rhodium finish intact. Comes accompanied with a Gem Scan Certificate of Evaluation stating an optimistic Replacement Value of $16,500.00 plus tax. We feel a more realistic value is closer to $9,300.00 CAD.
