This bracelet is from the line AerostatThe new model, which features the impressive silhouettes and ornate patterns of the majestic balloons that marked the beginning of the history of aeronautics under Louis XVI. The famous hot-air balloons, but also charlières, rozières, airships, zeppelins... are all extraordinary machines that marked their time, and influenced popular culture until today, fuelled by the imagination of writers (one thinks for example of Jules Verne and his hero Phileas Fogg).
Thus the jewels of the aérostats line are at the crossroads of the imaginary and the dreamlike, of the steampunk universe, of travel and novels; impregnated with an atmosphere of the Age of Enlightenment, 18th - 19th century... If you are curious to know more about the atmosphere & the history of this line, it's here !
The Gabriel would have been the name given to one of the first hot-air balloons in history.
This bracelet represents a hot-air balloon represented in relief (cameo style) standing out from a cloudy background in an oval frame. The balloon is decorated with engraved motifs. All around the oval frame are engraved weather symbols: rainbow, clouds, sun, lightning, rain.... The back is signed Res Mirum. The element has the peculiarity of being attached as a charm to the bracelet's fastening system, which is a system called toggle clasp or barrette. This system is worked here in the same way as the oval frame of the hot-air balloon, using cloudy motifs. The charm and clasp set is thus part of the design of the bracelet.
The chain used is the forçat ronde, a robust chain made in France.
This bracelet is 17 cm long in total and closes with a toggle clasp or barrette. It has two levels of tightening: 16 and 17 cm. This bracelet must be worn tight enough not to twist and hold the element on the top of the wrist; indicate your wrist size so that we can adjust it.
The charm is 22 mm by 16 mm.
The chain is made of round forçat, a robust chain made in France.
