❀This bracelet is part of a private collection/hoard. It was owned by a woman who inherited a huge inventory of antique jewelry from her antique dealer mother. It has been stored very well, under her bed, until now. I am so lucky to be able to purchase and offer to you the wonderful things that have been hidden away so very long.
❀This bracelet was made during the first half of the 1900's. It is the real thing.
❀There are three garnets that serve as the centers of the three flowers in the design. They have been tested and are genuine. The center garnet is a brighter orange color and the highest grade garnet of the three.
❀This bracelet has a wonderful floral design that is totally set with genuine marcasites. They are clean and have beautiful brilliance. No missing stones.
❀This is a hinged bangle. It has hinges on each side of the stone work and it has a strong slide in locking clasp with a safety chain. It opens up wide making it easy to place on your arm.
❀It measures 1" wide in the center front. The inside measurement is 7" in circumference.
❀It weighs 36.4 grams.
❀The silver has a nice patina from age. I have not polished or cleaned it to preserve the original patina and value as vintage. Since copies this sort of marcasite jewelry were made in the 1970's, it is advisable to leave the patina in place. If you like shine, buy a new replica.
❀I do not clean or polish any of my vintage pieces. I have learned that collectors do not want pieces altered in any way, even if they have a black tarnish and a crusty patina. Often times removing the patina or polishing will devalue a piece, even by 80%.
❀What a great find!
