This lovely bracelet offers a classic spun silver panel design with a solitaire cameo at center of the Psyche, bride of Cupid and goddess of the Soul.
The cameo is carved from Queen conch shell with a modern day Psyche depiction. Set in a raised bezel measuring 14x10.5mm, the cameo is further secured with four prongs. There are eleven square panels crafted in a spun silver design, each with an Etruscan style bead point. There is a slight gold wash finish to the silver that gives the bracelet an antiqued silver hue. The center panel is the largest at 15.5mm, with the remaining ten panels at 10.5mm. Each of the panels connect to the next with double jump rings. The bracelet closes with a hidden tongue and groove snap in closure. The bracelet measures 8 inches laid flat, 7-1/2 inches closed. There are no hallmarks legible. The bracelet measures 11.6 grams.
The cameo's hue is a soft white from a distance. When magnified, the background strata is actually a soft powder pink. The carving is atypical of the 1930's-1940's with Psyche's signature wings perched in her hair like a hair clip.
This bracelet is in excellent condition. There is no damage to any of the spun silver or points. All of the original connectors are in place and the clasp is in excellent working condition including its push button release. The gold wash finish is uniform, neither bright silver nor gold in hue, but rather silver with the appearance of a rich patina after polishing.
This bracelet is a great gift idea for any occasion. Not too flashy but always noticeable. It is a perfect companion accessory to mix and match with everything in your jewelry box and closet.
