Engraved Rolled Gold Bangle

An engraved 9ct 1/5th rolled gold bangle with a bronze core. Second-hand.

What's for sale?

This is a 9ct 1/5th rolled gold bangle with great colour and an engraved floral design on one half. 

It was made using the rolled gold technique, where a solid bronze core was wrapped in 9ct gold and then heated to fuse and bond them together. This gives a far superior and longer lasting finish compared to gold plating. For this piece, the gold makes up one fifth of the total weight.

The term "gold-filled" is more commonly used today and is synonymous with "rolled gold".

Who made it and when?

It's probably at least 40 years old; the maker's mark is similar to that used by Birmingham Jewellers Albert Jackson and reads:

  • AJ
  • 1/5 9ct bronze core

What condition is it in?

  • Second-hand
  • In good condition with some ageing
  • The overall shape is good
  • There is some deflection around the hinge and the catch, but both work well

  • 1cm width
  • 6cm by 5cm in diameter
  • 20 grams
