Condition report
The bangle has been enlarged in the past, with a section added the lower side of the hinge.
There is a colour difference in the gold at this point, although it is probable, this could be improved.
The hand engraved decoration at this point has been, re engraved to a high standard, and the alteration feels secure.
Small areas of tarnish but overall a good colour.
