This Hermès Vintage Zodiac Capricorn Bangle Bracelet is to the French luxury design house as the Panthère is to Cartier and Serpenti is to Bulgari: an iconic signature that takes on mythical proportions. Made by Hermès in the 1970s in 18K yellow gold, the fluted twisted bangle terminates in a polished ram's head accented by inverted marquise-shaped sapphire eyes. A pair of arched ribbed horns mirror the beautiful flowing lines of this sculptural figural bangle, as do the elegant, elongated ears and aquiline nose, signed Hermès Paris, with French assay marks. Signed luxury pieces that depict the symbols of the Zodiac such as this rare example are highly collectible right now. The inner circle has a circumference of 6.5 inches, hinged at the bottom of the curve to give the look of a fine custom fit.
The ornamentation of jewelry with a ram comes from Archaic, very likely Homeric Greece, and from its founding myths. The ram is directly linked with the myth of the Golden Fleece. Chrysomallos is a winged ram with a Golden Fleece and horns. The ram is summoned by Hermes—in this case, the son of Zeus and an Olympian deity in ancient Greek religion and mythology, not the French luxury design house established in 1837—to save the children of Nephele. Only one of the two children survives, Phrixos, who offers the ram in sacrifice to Zeus and gives the Golden Fleece to the king of his host country.
Known for luxury goods, Hermès has fourteen product divisions that includes leather, scarves, ties, womenswear, menswear, perfume, watches, stationery, footwear, gloves, enamelware, decorative arts, tableware, and jewelry. Hermès' goods are almost entirely made in France by hand in middle-sized workshops known as Les Ateliers Hermès that emphasize high-quality manufacturing. Most items are fabricated from beginning to end by only one person, thus assuring the quality and uniqueness of its products. Today, most motifs in Hermès jewelry collections are equestrian, making this Vintage Zodiac Capricorn Bangle Bracelet all the more unusual and desirable.
