Ask a question

Here’s a great quality nine-carat English gate-link bracelet from about 1910. 

The links are solid, making it sturdier than most antique bracelets, which are hollow. 

The simple repeated pattern of curved and straight lines gives it a contemporary feel, and the colour is a rich rose gold. 

Did you know that a heart padlock symbolised captured affection in the 19th century? In that sense an appealing old piece like this can be seen as an early prototype of the Cartier love bracelet.
