Jewellery in the Baroque era was strongly influenced by France; especially during the reign of the "Sun King", jewellery was ostentatious and expensive. Floral patterns and compositions were very popular.
Cardinal Mazarin allowed stone cutters to experiment with the gemstones from 1650 onwards, so that they were faceted. Types of cuts such as the Mazarin cut with 28 facets and the rose cut were created, and the cabochon cut that had been common until then was increasingly displaced.
Antique bracelet from the late baroque period. Oval pink tourmalines are set in tested solid yellow gold elements, the sizes of which vary slightly due to the hand-cut facets. The elements are bordered with a pearl rim. The individual elements were connected with links in solid gold, which, in keeping with the fashion of the time, depicted lilies. The back is closed, the clasp was probably renewed in the 19th or 20th century. Condition very good for its age. Museum piece and worthy of collecting.
