Description
The allure of this bracelet extends so far beyond the reaches of simply beauty. Of course there is an infinite amount of grace in the sinuous braiding that delicately strangles the dazzling, bold lines of the gold. Certainly it is timeless in its simplicity and awe-inspiring in its radiance. But beyond the loveliness of its appearance, this bracelet has a spirit and presence that no modern object of equal beauty could ever hope to contain. The dexterous and adoring fingers of a gold-smith two thousand years old leaps and dances across the surface of this bracelet. The scented wrist of a royal personage elegantly maneuvers it through the air, rich with the sound of his musicians, or the smell of her roasting meats. An entire universe of passions, elegances, and regality seem to rise from the earth with this bracelet. Laced with its unparalleled and completely immortal beauty is a vivid story; a testament to the endurance of humankind’s brilliance - (DC.0196)
