  • Catalogue Essay

    Bracelets have been one of the most beloved jewellery adornments since antiquity. The origin of the term, bracelet, derives from the Greek ‘brachile’ meaning ‘of the arm’. Attention is drawn to the movements of arms and hands, as the bracelets sparkle and speak of the wearer. Whilst they can be of any design and material imaginable, a classic design comprised of precious gemstones always makes for a statement piece.

    Of all the precious gemstones rubies and diamonds have been considered the most prized. Lot 586, an articulated ruby and diamond bracelet is composed of a line of 16 Burmese pigeon’s blood rubies, accentuated by variously cut diamonds in a delicately set openwork design. The invisibly-set ruby outline enhances the attractiveness of the central rubies, creating a strong yet feminine design.

    自古以來,手鏈可謂最受世人推崇的珠寶首飾之一。手鏈一詞,源自希臘語的「brachile」,意即「手臂」——戴上手鏈,顧盼生輝,讓眾人的眼光聚焦於佩戴者的手臂和手掌之上。手鏈的設計和材料包羅萬有,傳統的珠寶設計往往採用珍貴寶石作為點綴,矚目不凡。

    在芸芸珍稀寶石之中,紅寶石和鑽石可謂備受世人青睞。拍品編號 586 紅寶石配鑽石手鏈呈鏤空鉸接式設計,鑲一行 16 顆緬甸「鴿血紅」紅寶石,配以不同形狀的切割鑽石,手工精緻細膩。紅寶石採用無痕鑲嵌法,令主石更為閃爍耀目,整件珠寶氣派十足,同時不乏陰柔之美,兩者相得益彰。
