The Revival Collection - Georgian Cut Steel Bracelet

740 kr


The Revival Collection features redesigned one of a kind pieces using antique materials. 



Cut steel jewellery was popularised when King Louis of France requested High Society donate their jewellery to help fund the war in the mid 1700s. Because precious metals could only be used for the war, goldsmiths had to come up with innovative ideas to make jewellery. Cut steel eventually became such a popular jewellery staple that Napoleon Bonaparte even commissioned a complete set for his second bride, Marie Louise in 1810. 


This bracelet features a Georgian cut steel buckle fixed onto a 1940s rolled gold watch strap. In a previous life, this buckle would have belonged in a gentleman's shoe collection. But don't worry this buckle is in such immaculate condition it clearly has never been worn before. Each cut steel rivet stone has been hand cut and polished to catch the light and sparkle like diamonds.


Cut steel jewellery is prone to rusting so it is important you store it in a dry place and keep it out of water. If it is wet, be sure to dry it properly. 


Excellent condition as reworked from antique materials into a brand new piece. There is some chipping to the rolled gold covering on the watch but this can only be seen through the loupe. 


Buckle measures 52mm x 40mm

Inner diameter of bracelet measures 5.5 

The strap is extendable by an additional 0.5cm


The inside of the watch is signed "L.W. STDY.PAT"


rolled gold, stainless steel, cut steel, base metal (The baseplates of these pieces were from various base metals such as brass, tin or silver alloys, so please bear this in mind if you have any allergies)
