Not Hallmarked but tests at least 15ct
Turquoise; 3.5-4.5mm in superb condition and stunning duck egg blue colour
Snake chain width; just over 3mm, no dents or catches
Superb unusual snake link in superb condition
Mourning locket attachment 15.5mm across not including attachment.
Central turquoise compartment through which chain links 15 x 18mm
Length; expandable, can be worn at any length. Once the bracelet is worn and the and one side of the chain tightened into place the bracelet holds. Only one chain moves through the compartment, the other is fixed. The bracelet holds better when worn as in pictures. There is a tiny notch on the compartment which I think is locking one of the two ends into place. I have worn a few times as I wanted to keep and this is not loosening when worn this way, however it could be this notch click in for more security, I am not sure.
Beautiful detail all the way round
Lovely etching to the lockets
24.8g- a very substantial weight
Good condition with minimal signs of wear commensurate of age. Will fit a medium wrist. Clasp in excellent working condition.
