I have collected vintage costume jewelry for over 25 years, and have some fabulous pieces/sets. I will be listing most of them in the next months/years (however long it takes to pare down my extensive collection).Please keep an eye on my listings, as some wonderful items will be for sale. Sometimes I find that some of the best pieces are unsigned. They can be of the best quality, most colorful and bright stones, and shiny metalwork that would rival the finest design houses!
This is one of those. This heavy and excellent-quality bracelet is a real show-stopper! The bracelet is quite wide, and is set with some of the most glorious stones!
I have seen pieces like this by designers such as Hobe', Charles Winston, and Schiaparelli, to name a few. SIGNAGE : Unsigned, but very much like bracelets I've had by Schiaparelli or Hobe'. All pieces are very well-constructed, a designer piece for sure.I'm just not sure who deserves the credit! I do believe it to be a more contemporary piece, more like Alice Caviness or Hattie Carnegie. It has "Made In China" on the back of the clasp. STONES/COLORS: The bracelet includes multiple rows of large, medium, and small-sized stones in vibrant shades of purple, rose, pink, and clear.
They have many shapes such as: Princess, round, pear-shaped, oval, and teardrop-shaped. All of these stones are open-backed, faceted, prong-set, and are just covering the heavy bracelet in multi-colored sparkle. The bold design with the large and small stones is a very intricate network, and the bracelet is quite wide.
METAL COLOR: Shiny Gold-toned metal. CONDITION/FLAWS: Wonderful condition with virtually no wear that I can determine to stones or metal. Any would be understandable, but I can find none to speak of. It must have been worn on rare. There is hardly any wear to the golden-toned metal on the back of the piece.All stones are bright and clear with none missing. Long by 1 1/8 in. The bracelet is quite heavy, and does not have a safety. ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE, AND REMEMBER THAT ALL JEWELRY.
