Unusual 18 Karat Gold and Diamond Bangle by Puig Doria of Barcelona
Made in the 1970's in thick 18k Gold, the hands are modelled in the Cubist manner, with angles and planes and without curves, rather like a Soviet era poster. The upper hand holds a Diamond between thumb and index finger and the other hand, virtually unseen except from the reverse, clasps the upper hand in pleasure for the gift of a Diamond, so I would call this an Engagement Bangle and why not?
A plate in the reverse reads PUIG DORIA 750.
