Bulgari

An Unusual Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli and Woven Gold Bracelet

An unusual gold, turquoise and lapis lazuli bracelet by Bulgari c.1960, the bracelet formed of a woven gold strap twisted around and wrapped with a double row of round polished turquoise beads and another of matching lapis lazuli beads, the rows of beads interspersed at regular intervals with gold twisted wire work spacers, to a covered clasp with safety. This lovely bracelet has a chic yet casual and relaxed feel to it, with a summery colour combination evoking images of golden sands, turquoise waters and endless blue skies. It is beautifully flexible and would look great with a crisp white shirt or floaty summer dress.
