Bourbon jewellery is characterised by very fine workmanship, despite the not very high value of the materials used. The new manufacturing techniques of the period allowed the creation of jewellery in thin metal foil that was cut and embossed, thus producing items of jewellery with a limited quantity of gold, but with a very vivacious and opulent look thanks to the workmanship and to the use of stones and especially of patterns of small pearls characteristic of the Bourbon era.

Generally the quality of the gold is never very high, however it is not always easy to determine the fineness of Bourbon era items of jewellery, because every goldsmith employed his personal 'recipe' for the gold. Notwithstanding this, we come across very rare and precious items of jewellery, which deserve to be worn with pride.
The bracelet is in very good aesthetic condition and will be shipped with tracking.
