Developed in the 1930s, the clear acrylic plastic branded as Lucite became a wildly popular for material for costume jewelry starting in the 1950s. Less expensive to produce than Bakelite, Galalith, and Catalin and more chemically stable than celluloid, Lucite made these earlier jewelry plastics obsolete.

In its pure form, Lucite is translucent, resembling glass or rock crystal, but it can be dyed in a wide range of colors and opacity, making it the perfect material for bold blocks of Mid-century Modern colors. Hard, water-resistant, and lightweight, Lucite can be carved and polished, and it is easy to wear.

This lovely pastel magenta lucite cuff bracelet set, circa 1950's, is stylish to the eye and fun to wear. The bracelet has wonderful translucent color display. The 3/4" wide band has a flat interior and rounded top with ample 2 1/2" diameter opening. Vintage condition with no damages; ready to wear and enjoy.
