18k Gold Tank Track Bracelet, Fabulously Heavy 1950's Retro

You might be starting to notice that I have a little thing for Retro jewelry. It's a bit before my time, but I love the way that the post-war optimism carried over into the jewelry and design of the era.

The Allies victory in World War II was celebrated throughout Europe and heavy gold tank track bracelets and other chunky jewelry burst onto the scene. All metals had been used in the war effort, and gold and platinum were no exception. New fine jewelry production came to a virtual halt from 1939-1945. So, now with the war over, jewelry makers reveled in the availability of precious metals and made some of the most solid pieces of jewelry we find today.

Seen here is a prime example of one of these pieces. You won't find any hollow links in this chain, it's solid through and through. Weighting in at a truly remarkable 130 grams of 18 karat yellow gold, this bracelets real beauty is in it's weight, in that optimism of plenty.

This bracelet is really, truly, superior. Wearing it you can't help but feel victorious. It's a good workout, too, just don't forget to change wrists every once in a while! It measures 7.75 inches long, has no hallmarks, but tests as 18kt gold.

Thanks! If you like this piece and would like to see more, simply click the 'All Shop's Items' link on the upper left of this page, underneath the search bar. Then simply relax and enjoy!
