A citrine clip-bracelet combination by CARTIER

This is a great bracelet by Cartier set with two clips that can be worn also separately. It was made in the late 1930's, it displays reminiscences of Art Deco on the geometrical design but the use of  yellow gold and citrine stones is typical of the following Retro period. The whole piece is set using a combination of different cut yellow and brown citrine gemstones with some details in diamonds to bring up the light. Altogether a beautiful and modern statement bracelet!.

It comes up for auction at Sotheby's Geneva on May 17th.
