Thermoset is a form of lucite which has been molded into interesting shapes. It was widely used by Coro, Lisner and other vintage jewelry designers during the 1950s and 1960s. Often the settings are open backed and the shapes are curved. Thermoset pieces normally are cabochons, with the bottom area being flat for ease of inserting into settings. It was most commonly used in necklaces, earrings and bracelets, but can be found in other types of jewelry too.
This classic six-link bracelet is composed of individual, oval, rich pink, thermoset cabochons mounded in a gold-tone setting. The slightly curved cabochons are glossy and velvet smooth to the touch. The bracelet measures 7 1/2" in length and 1 1/2" width with a fold-over clasp. Great color and near mint condition. The piece is not marked as to maker.
