I’d been keeping an eye out for an old cut bracelet for over a year when I crossed paths with this.

10.6 ctw, G-I, VS1-SI2. The diamonds range from .3-.39, but they’re all closely matched in length/width and the bezels make it hard to see size differences. Set in platinum over 16K yellow gold, estimated Art Deco. It’s a bit long for me at 7”, but I’d rather wear it loose than to alter it. It’s beautifully crafted so it doesn’t roll. (For reference, my wrist is 6”.)

This thread is dedicated to @LLJsmom !:lol-2:

Now THIS is gorgeous, fabulous, amazing, casual (that's a good thing), wearable and everything... :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2:

Congratulations @JPie . WHAT a find. I would wear this 24/7. The bezels are so awesome. Makes each OEC pop but lets you wear this all day long and not worry. Thanks for the close-ups of the setting. The basket of each stone is just lovely and smooth.

And you must add it to the tennis bracelet thread. Though this so far surpasses any regular old tennis bracelet. Darn. Now I have OEC, bezel tennis bracelet envy... You evil girl. :evil2:

Bezel set OECs are like my favorite thing and here’s a whole bracelet full! It’s really amazing.
Thank you! I did think it was a bit of a unicorn to find 33 antique OECs of roughly the same size

I love, love, love, this! And I still want to put my thumbprint on those stones :lol: I can't help it.
So, sparklyyyyyyyyyyo_O
:shock::lol:

Thank you! Two of the bezels look like they’ve been chewed up, but they’re still securely holding the diamonds. That’s definitely an advantage!

Snort... let's see if our current settings can last this long! That's some spectacular craftsmanship. Like I keep saying (like a broken record), I can't get over the profile view of the bezels.

OMG @JPie - talk about dream pieces!! :shock: :cool2:

I love the way the links are attached - such a fluid idea, and the craftsmanship is wonderful! And those stones are glorious!! The differences... In some of your closeups I can see variations in size, but honestly, it feels like this is the way this piece is supposed to look. I've been looking for an OMC cluster and I want one with stones that are slightly asymmetric in shape and size for the same reason!

Unicorn. Perfect description for this piece. I think you could search a lifetime and not find an authentic period piece like this. Please post more photos!!

What does the clasp look like?
:love: :appl:

Wow!
It’s not just the stones, but the craftsmanship!
Absolutely amazing!
Thank you! I think it would be difficult to find something like this again.

Thanks! There is something to be said for old-school craftsmanship.

Oh my LAWD! This is simply sensational! I would never take it off. What a find! Congrats!
Thank you!
