Antique CONVERTIBLE brooch/bracelet/pendant

This is an interesting bracelet from the 1850's, the central piece is detachable and can be worn either as a brooch or as a pendant. The shape, wider in the middle, is typical from this period but it is unusual to find it set in silver and only with diamonds since this was a time of colour, yellow gold and enamel set with all kind of gemstones was a lot more popular. It will be auctioned at Sotheby's London on july 13th.
