Bordered by a pair of foil-backed marquise rose-cut diamonds measuring 7.98mm long and 4.54mm wide with a pair of peripheral rose-cuts measuring 7.17mm long and 3.92mm wide, these rare stones are mounted in alternate alignment to the absorbing florettes, bordered by diamond-studded buds and leaves. The enchanting quatrefoil-petal florettes are adorned in the center with graduating size diameter pairs of round-faceted rose-cut diamonds measuring 4.15mm, 3.87mm, 3.58mm, 3.42mm, 3.21mm and 2.89mm. In addition to the round and marquise rose-cut diamonds, this exquisite Georgian wrist-adornment is mounted with an additional 202 twinkling Baroque rose-cut diamonds, ornamenting the entire surface of this very rare and enticing pristine Georgian bracelet. As in all jewelry from the Georgian era, all the rose-cut diamonds on this bracelet are mounted in closed 'foil-backed' settings. Until the beginning of the nineteenth century gemstones were always mounted in closed settings which, although preventing light from passing through the stones, had the great advantage of enabling the jewelers to enhance, match and modify the color of the stones by means of colored foils placed between the frequently concave mount and the underside of the gem. This antique Georgian bracelet is secured by the original slide-in clasp, bearing the Dutch hallmark and the three-digit '585' within a leaf-shaped cartouche denoting the Assay mark for the city of Rotterdam. The clasp closure features a figure-eight safety latch for additional security which, in spite of the considerable passage of time, is in pristine condition.
