14kt & Sterling Silver Arlene Altman Modernist Bracelet
Arlene Altman was a jewelry designer to the Hollywood stars. Her pieces are extremely rare. Back in 1988 this bracelet was priced at $2200 and sold. I have a little snipit from the Los Angeles Times about her show.
Opening night at Arlene Altman's new jewelry boutique in the Rodeo Collection, it was the flowers that had the big-name celebrity connections. The card on one bouquet was signed Julio Iglesias. The other flowers came from Carole Bayer Sager and Burt Bacharach, Altman says. All three songsters are on her long list of celebrity clients. She says Iglesias recently ordered custom watches from Altman for his friends Stevie Wonder and Oscar de la Renta. Wonder's watch is an antique, one of the first after World War I designed for the blind, with raised numbers on the face, Altman explains. She gave it her signature watchband in gold and silver. As for the jewelry on display opening night, Altman says: "It's for all the people who've lost their marbles." We don't have to tell you what it's made of.
This bracelet is composed of 45 repeating bars of silver interspersed with 5 bars of 14kt gold it is unique and luxurious in its simplicity.
