SOLD Incredible Antique Big Jade Mexican Bracelet
STUNNING Antique jade bracelet. Purchased from the original owner this bracelet was originally procured in Culiacan, Mexico in 1914. Set in a sterling silver frame with no back to allow light through the stone, the centrepiece is a wide, curved rectangle of jade with an Aztec face carving. It was restrung twenty five years ago on jewellery wire to maintain its integrity and a safety chain was added at the same time. Eighteen beads are strung on each side and it closes with a tab clasp. This a large and striking bracelet, good weight to it and a highly unusual piece - the jade is banded and slightly translucent with inclusions - lovely!
