I've been looking over the stock in our SHOP AT RUBY LANE and realized we're almost overstocked in bangles ... if such a thing is possible. What I've also noticed is the diversity of bangles available. It's quite amazing how many different styles, metals, stones etc differentiate one bangle from another. Personally, I'm a bangle and bracelet person, more so than rings and maybe that's why I keep buying them for our shop, thinking others like them as much as I do. Am I wrong?
Well let me tell you ... and maybe tempt you ... with some of the gorgeous bangles we are currently carrying. That one at the top of this post is, undeniably, the most valuable, if not the most beautiful of all those we have. We just had it appraised in February, and to our delight, it came in at over $10,000. WOW! It's 14k and has 2.85cts of top quality diamonds, ranging from VVS baguettes to Si1 round cuts with superb color in all. The overall weight of the bangle is 25grams, but let's face it: that's all the technical details: if the beauty of the design itself doesn't speak to you, nothing will. This is just an outstanding piece of vintage jewelry being offered to you at 1/3 its appraised value. CLICK HERE to see more photos and learn more about it.
Alternately, maybe your taste in bangles goes well back in time, way before the dating on the bangle above, like to the early 1900's? In that case, take a look at this utterly charming Art Nouveau 14k gold bangle adorned with genuine angel skin coral cameos:
And since we're talking designers, how about this, our latest acquistion and addition to OUR RUBY LANE SHOP. We're really pleased and excited to be able to offer our shoppers this authenticated CARTIER set of bangle and brooch:
