This is a Victorian era gold-filled (not gold) bypass hinged bangle bracelet.

The patent is for the hinge mechanism given on March 21, 1887, but the bracelet

was more likely made in around 1895. This piece is valued at $125 to $140 based

on recent sales of the same style bracelet, commonly called a bypass bangle.
