This a vintage sterling silver school themed charm bracelet that would make a wonderful gift for your daughter or for a teacher that you admire. It starts with a young girl walking on her first day of attending primary school to her graduation day. I am sure there are many more memories in between but you would need to have a necklace to put everything in there from sports, music, drama etc. The bracelet measures 7 1/2" in length by 1/4" wide and it is marked 925 for silver content. There are 24 sterling silver charms attached and many are quite rare. I will give you a few measurements of the charms to give you an idea of the size.
