    G'day Folks,

    Something a bit stunning and not seen often out "in the wild" ;) This 18ct bracelet features a unique style that I haven't seen around anywhere else...it is a beautiful piece and the pics really don't do it justice :D

    Some of the WA Stackers (and a couple of our interstate Stackers too) have seen this piece before but it doesn't get out much lol

    Time has come to let it go now though, reluctantly, so hoping to keep it in the Stacker community as it really is a sensational item :cool:

    Weighing in at an impressive 66gms of 18ct (.750) yellow gold it also come with 2 spare links (extra 6 gms worth) for those that maybe require a looser fit (or have bigger wrists lol) and due to the "compact" styling it almost looks like a solid piece with the middle of each link having a finish the really sparkles...

    The closest I could find on offer at Sarraf's (in similar size/weight etc) lists a RRP of $15,799USD ($20,609AUD) with a "sale" price of $4514USD ($5888AUD) *Which doesn't have as good a latch as this one or look anywhere near as good :p*

    Another interesting point for consideration, with regards to "stacking" jewellry, is that it is easy to transport (if you need to "bug out") and in a possible "confiscation scenario" jewellry is safe from govmint theft :rolleyes:

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 WST (20:30 SA / 21:00 EDST/ 20:00 Qld) - Sunday 12th November...TONIGHT!!!

    As
    usual the "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish will be in play...

    Given the "Larger than usual" ticket price for this, and being aware some might not like to make their purchases known, in this instance I'll open this up to PM bids as well...

    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *


    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum timeclock any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    BELOW SPOT RESERVE - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner of this fantastic piece!

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    1 * 18ct Gold Bracelet with 2 spare links - Reserve - $2900 (Current Spot $1675 / 31.1 = ~$53.80/gm)
    66gms (+ 6gms) = 72gms total (AGW - 54gms)
    Total length - ~22cm (~21cm when clasped), ~10mm wide and ~4mm thick.
    Hallmarked - "750"

    Just noticed there are more views on this one than any of the last couple of multi-lot Auctions...with only 4 Bidders it looks like there might be a few "Lurkers" :p
