    The Details...

    This bracelet is constructed from gilded metal panels with open-work details. They are stamped with spiral-like patterns - a typically abstract, but organic, Jugendstil design. The bracelet is set with four, faceted, purple glass panels, which have different depths of colour in different lights. The bracelet fastens with a bolt ring and measures 18.5cm in length. 

    A Short History...

    The term Jugendstil, meaning "Young Style," was derived from the magazine Die Jugend and describes an art and design movement which took place in Germany from c.1896 through to c.1915. Taking place at the same time as the Art Nouveau movement which was inspired by the natural world, Jugendstil was also heavily influenced by organic shapes but contrasted them with geometric forms resulting in very stylised designs. Important Jugendstil jewellery designers were Carl Herman, Meyle and Mayer and Georg Kleeman. This bracelet was doubtlessly influenced by their woprk. 

    Wear it With...

    This bracelet is the perfect statement piece. Pair with a velvet or silk wrap dress in jewel tones for ultimate evening impact.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
