This is one of my finds when I went to Newark antique fair. I love Austro - Hungarian jewellery so I'm extremely pleased to add this to my collection.
Well were do I start, as you can see it as everything from enameling on the 8 panels and also what I would say on the spires of each panel, there is a small amount of enamel loss but considering the age the bracelet is in great condition. Also on the central spire of each panel is an opal, I think these opals are called Hungarian opals, I have tried to show the amazing colour of these opals, I shall put a link below explaining the history of them. The tongue on the front as a mark which I've researched but come up with nothing, on the back it is marked 835 and PV for Budapest. I always look at the back of any jewellery I buy because I think it shows the quality of the piece, the back of this bracelet is amazing it's a work of art in its self. I shall let the photo's do the talking, if anybody recognizes the mark on the front that would be brilliant, I'm also not sure of the date except the Austro-Hungarian mark went out of existence after WW1
Many thanks for looking
