It is my pleasure to offer this
RARE Antique Vintage 10K Gold GF SPEIDEL CAMEO Bracelet Earrings Set BOX & DOME

 ~Please read the description then scroll down for the full display of pictures – just click on them to enlarge for more detail as they are part of the description. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to ask~

 

From my personal collection - In MINT, Unworn condition - is this Genuine and Complete Speidel Bracelet & Earrings set. Included is the EXTRAORDINARY presentation stand with its ornate plastic base and domed lid with fancy matching knob AND the original external box with is just as Beautiful. I have provided some pictures of the maker's advertisement (for information purposes) for this very range of jewellery - Old World Jewels by Speidel. Remarkable!

 

This particular set with its simulated Cameos and Pearls was referred to as "Spirit of France".  It is comprised of an expansion or adjustable bracelet featuring a locket beneath the cameo; the links expand with a scissor-like action to allow the bracelet to slip over the hand & close back to fit the wrist snugly. The gold hued links are zigzagged in formation with a rich yellow gold hue and they are all attached & secure with the “elasticity” as new.

 

The earrings are clip-ons with spring backings.

 

It has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique jewellery and the contrast of the rose and yellow/green gold is Gorgeous!

Buying with Confidence from Antique Gold and Jewels

Many of the pieces offered here are from our personal collection and sourced from estates worldwide.


About Gold Filled jewellery

Antique & Vintage Gold Filled Jewellery has the quality look & silky feel normally only associated with solid carat gold! It was crafted to such high standards it was, and still is, classified as Fine Jewellery by many. In fact, it can be very difficult to determine whether a piece is solid gold or gold filled they are so similar in appearance.

The gold creates a "shell" over the base or frame - the added bonus of a base metal or metal core means it makes it far less fragile than comparable Solid Gold jewellery. The base metal offers strength & durability making denting less likely & coupled with the quality workmanship of a bygone era, Gold Filled jewellery wears comparably to the low carat solid gold pieces of today.

Gold Filled refers to the process of producing jewellery by bonding a sheet of solid carat gold to a precious or semi-precious base metal like brass, copper or sterling, by the process of heat & pressure. It is similar to or the same as Rolled Gold but generally of superior quality, in our opinion.

The mark indicating a piece is Gold Filled is 1/20 meaning the gold is 1/20th by weight of the item. Antique pieces often had a higher gold content prior to legislation. Some are marked 1/10 meaning they are a Higher Grade Gold Filled or Gold Shell, a term commonly used for both 1/20 and 1/10 constructed pieces.

The Gold Filled process is very different to Gold Plating. Modern gold plated items have a thin spray of gold, today referred to as electroplating, which can wear easily due to a number of reasons including oils in the skin, perfumes & soaps. Antique gold plating is usually thicker & of superior quality. Generally speaking, the layer of gold for gold filled pieces is up to 100 times thicker, if not more, compared to gold plating.


Interesting History of Gold Filled Jewellery

Gold Filled is NOT the same as Gold Plating and prior to 1907 was usually not marked or stamped as such until legislation (The Stamping Act 1906) requiring jewellery of Gold Filled construction to be stamped/marked or hallmarked or identified. Even after this time, a piece could be presented in a box or with a tag stating it was Gold Filled. We use an electronic gold tester, a jeweller's loupe and research of each maker & the types of jewellery they were known to produce, so we are able to accurately advise exactly how each piece is constructed and the era it was produced. If there is any doubt, we will consult a jeweller for their opinion. We will never file into or damage a piece to determine its construction.
