This is a wonderful bracelet with 14 charms from the 1960s and two from the 80s. Four charms open: one to view an American Flag, one a Telescope, an Astronaut, and the first dog into space, Liaka. The bracelet measures 8" in length by 3/8" in width with solid links and there is a hook clasp closure that is marked STERLING. The links make me think of spiraling donut holes. Use your imagination for three of the charms attached, that makes me think of our universe and what is out there with so many possibilities. All the charms are original period and not reproductions. They have all tested positive for sterling silver and five are hallmarked for silver content. The charms are as follows:
1- Giant Sun or Planet; measures 1/2" in diameter.
2- Shooting Star; measures 1/2" long not including the bail ring.
3- NASA AMES Research Center; 3/4" in diameter and marked JMS STER.
4- Space Observatory Opens to Telescope and Stars on the bottom; measures 1/2" in diameter and 3/8" tall with secure closure.
5- 1969 Apollo 11 Opens to Astronaut Neil Armstrong; measures 7/8" in length with secure closure and marked EJ STG.
6- Asteroid or Rocky Comet; measures more than 1/2" in diameter and hallmarked on the bail ring.
7- 1980s NASA Space Shuttle Discovery; the first flight was on August 30, 1984; it measures 7/8" long not including the bail ring and marked STER.
8- Moon Earth Comb Opens to American Flag; measures 1/2" in diameter and has a secure closure.
9- 1980s Donut Universe; measures 3/4" long by 1/2" wide by slightly more than 1/4" thick. Made of hollow construction and hallmarked. I got the idea for this charm watching the science channel and shown in the last photo.
10- Sputnik opens to Liaka; measures 1/2" in diameter and marked SILVER and has a secure closure.
11- Astronaut; measures 7/8" long not including the bail ring.
12- Attendance First Radio Satellite; measures 3/8" in diameter and marked LGB STER.
What is nice about this bracelet is that if you want to wear it a bit tighter on the wrist it can be attached to any ring leaving one or two charms to dangle like a watch fob if you wish. It is quite pretty!
Thank you for looking!
