Six oval tourmaline cabochons, each of approx. 4 carats, set between solidly worked, rectangular elements subdivided by smaller rectangular elements in high relief. The 18k gold with a fine gold wash is polished on the higher level surface and left matte in the low-lying parts, underlining the interesting abstract composition of the bracelet, the warm gold tone harmonizing beautifully in colour with the deep green tourmalines. Securely closing, unobtrusive double-tongued box clasp.
From the workshop of Otto Hahn II. (1899 - 1984), descendant in third generation from a family of goldsmiths. He opened his own atelier in Bielefeld in 1924, following the steps of his father Otto Hahn I. (1873 – 1953), goldsmith and professor at Berlin-Charlottenburg School of Applied Arts and grandfather Christoph Heinrich Hahn (1838 – 1910). At the Paris International Exposition in 1937 Otto Hahn II. was awarded a silver medal. The business was continued by his son Otto Hahn III.
