The Details...

A rare design from Schreiber and Hiller - this bracelet is made up of semi-circular, rhodium plated links, channel-set with round, multi-faceted clear and emerald green paste stones. These links are all threaded onto a mesh band. The bracelet fastens with a concealed box clasp. It is signed - D.R.G.M and the patent numbers 1138525 are stamped twice onto the inside of the bracelet. The internal diameter of the bracelet when fastened is 6cm. 

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. This bracelet is certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - its bold geometry, encrusted with bright rhinestones for a new feminine look and movement. This bracelet was made by the German Schreiber and Hiller company who stamped their jewellery with the patent DRGM in the 1930s. It stands for Deutsches Reichs Gebrauchsmuster.
