A lovely quality vintage 9ct rolled gold expanding baby bangle that is deeply engraved in a beautiful diamond pattern.
Popular in Britain since Victorian times these charming expandable bangles come in both gold and silver and are traditional baby gifts. They are given at births, christenings and baptisms, in fact any occasion when a lasting thoughtful keepsake gift is required for a special infant.
The bangle is fairly thick gauge and flexible. It expands at the tabs when both sides are gently pulled apart allowing it to be slipped over baby's hand. This bangle is in lovely vintage condition with no wearing away of the thick gold overlay. A very sweet and traditional piece of baby jewellery and bound to be cherished!
Rolled gold (gold fill) is made by mechanically fusing solid gold to a base metal, often silver. It is different to gold plating which is electroplated, so simply a thin gold wash. The thickness of the gold used in rolled gold jewellery is typically 20 microns so it has the appearance and durability of solid gold without the very high cost!

MEASUREMENTS: measures 3.8mm wide with a circumference of roughly 5-1/4" (13cm) at rest and will expand by an extra inch (2.5cm)
