Vintage Solid 13k Or 14k Rose Gold Bracelet W/ Huge Charm - Judaica-19 Grams:
One of the most attractive chain bracelets I've ever seen - my photos don't reflect the beautiful rich rose gold of the piece. I hesistated to list this in the charm bracelet category because there is really only a single loop for the one charm (which, by it's enormous size, is really more of a feature of the bracelet rather than a standard charm). In fact, the charm is so large and substantial, both in diameter and depth, that it could certainly be worn as a pendant. Re the karat - I took this in months ago to one of those 'cash for gold' places and they tested it - according to them, the bracelet itself is closer to 13 karats (hallmarked 14K) and claimed the charm was 11 karats (there are both yellow and rose gold on the charm and not sure which area they tested) . I have no idea if those cash for gold stores can be trusted - seems to me there might be a conflict of interest in terms of getting an accurate karat reading since they are buying , but thought I should pass along the information just in case their assessment was accurate.
Loads of hallmarks on the piece including 14K (the 1 is rather worn) - see closeup below. Also a hallmark on the loop of the charm which was just too small to photograph. Clasp works perfect (notice the extra locking arm), and still has its nice little safety chain. I believe that is a real Persian turquoise on the one side of the charm. The rose gold is such an attractive colour - so flattering to every skin colour. Tthere is one flaw to the bracelet - one part of one link (a tiny area) is worn through and hanging by a thread (see last two photos which show the damage from both sides of the bracelet). Even were this to break entirely, I think the bracelet would still be wearable as I think it would remain secure enough, however, you'll probably want to have it repaired to be on the safe side (or scrap of course) . A lovely vintage piece that I believe dates to the 1960's or so. The charm measures 13/16" in diameter by about 5/8" deep. Bracelet measures 3/8" wide. Hard to get the length of the bracelet because of the safety chain, but when closed it measures somewhere between 7"-71/4" around. Weighs approx 19 grams.
