Ciner created fine (real) jewelry from the 1890s to around 1930. Their fashion jewelry line was launched with open arms to a crowd hungry for the look of fine jewelry at affordable prices. Ciner's history with fine jewelry suited them well as they fashioned their costume line with the same attention to detail. When you study Ciner's fashion jewels-- particularly their higher end inventory, notice how intricate and precise the construction is. Materials and workmanship are outstanding in the best of Ciner's work. Such is the case with the magnificent bracelet offered for your consideration. It is a rhodium plated, domed, articulated masterpiece of design and execution. The base dome begins with pave set crystal clear rhinestones. 14 arched double row bridges of faux sapphire crystal rhinestones are spaced from end to end. These stations rise above the domed base for superb dramatic dimension. The bracelet is secured via a push in box type clasp incorporated into the design. A detachable safety chain is included. The bracelet is semi flexible. One of the wonders of Ciner's construction is that whether the bracelet is in a flat, round or oval position it remains as one constant, consistent line. There are no breaks or gaps as the bracelet shapes to the wrist. Turn the bracelet over to investigate it's "workings". The heavy rhodium plated links are reinforced with double rows of semi rigid chain linkage, preventing the bracelet links from separating to reveal and of the metal settings beneath. All you see from the front is an uninterrupted line of crystal rhinestones. The reverse of this bracelet is as precisely finished as the front. Ciner's highest quality.
The bracelet measures about 7 1/2 inches x 5/8 inch with a 1/4 inch maximum dome or arch. The bracelet weighs an incredible approximate 64 grams. It is semi flexible, conforming to an oval to fit the wrist beautifully.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All clear or "white" rhinestone are intact and brilliant. No dull, cloudy, dark or dead stones. All sapphire colored blue glass stones have consistent color and sparkle. The faux sapphires with a backdrop of faux diamonds is knockout! All rhodium plate intact, front and back. Push in box clasp secure. Safety chain secure. All construction remains in as new condition. No damage / no repairs.
The bracelet is signed twice. Once on the reverse of the box clasp with "CINER" in block caps and also on the reverse of the faux sapphire bridge at the opposite end of the bracelet -- near the male end of the clasp with "CINER" followed with the copyright symbol.
If you're looking for Ciner's top of the line in fashion jewelry and prefer your pieces within the realm of "reality" this bracelet is the perfect choice. After all, keeping them guessing is half the fun. Play it up with Ciner. Play for keeps.
