This is a vintage sterling silver Paleontology theme charm bracelet with 22 sterling silver charms. It has many tools used at the dig sites. Some are quite rare and unique with two custom made by an Artisan that makes this bracelet so incredible. The bracelet has solid sterling silver circle ring links and it measures 7 1/2" in length by a little less than 3/8" wide. It is marked STERLING on the working circle clasp that measures 5/8" in diameter. I will give you a few measurements of the charms to provide an idea of the sizes. Unmarked charms with an asterisk have tested as sterling silver and all the other charms are hallmarked for silver content and weighs 70 grams. The charms are as follows:
1- RARE - Hand Saw, measures 1 5/8" with the bail ring by 1/2" wide.
2- Tweezers*, measures 3/4" long with the bail ring by 1/4" wide.
5- Hand Spade, measures 1 1/4" long.
