Vintage, 9ct gold Byzantine Link Bracelet.
This bracelet is approximately 19.5cm (7 3/4") long and 5mm (3/16)wide. The clasp is a new replacement trigger clasp. The chain is of a hollow construction with gives a chunky look without being unbearably heavy. It's Italian made, but has a UK hallmark.
Metal/Hallmarks: Hallmarks for London (Import mark), Common Control Mark (convention mark) for 9ct gold and a sponsors mark of MST. It also has Italian 375 marks.
Weight is approximately 10.17g
Condition: It's in good condition. There is a repair to one of the end tabs where it was cut through. Ordinarily I would replace this, but this one has the hallmark on. The clasp is a brand new replacement as the original was cut off. One of the hollow links has an open join, which hasn't presented a problem. The bracelet is still secure as the links interweave.
All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically.
