A very fine 18kt rose and yellow gold French, hinged bangle with a cabochon emerald, dating to the late 19th century. The piece is entirely handmade and features a beautifully pierced and engraved band which to the centre is a round medallion, housing a cabochon cut emerald. The piece has a concealed tongue and box clasp which has four very tiny French marks. One mark appears to be the French purity mark while the others are unfortunately indecipherable. A gorgeous and original piece of French 19th century jewellery.
