Wonderful heavy, well made piece. This Beautiful Bracelet was found in need of repair. I had it shortened to 7 inches and had all the Pin's that link each section replaced Professionally, the Jeweler said the Clear Stones are Zircon's (a Natural Gemstone, see below). The section's that were removed will be included incase you would want to lengthen it or have a Pendant or Ring made to compliment it. It was the Pin's that needed to be replaced and the bracelet cleaned. You can see the sections that were removed are a little darker just from not being cleaned. The Removed Links could be added back onto the bracelet by a jeweler who can place new pins to link them, then the length will be about 8 inches.
Excellent Vintage Condition from the late 1930's -1940's. The total piece before being repaired weighed 55 grams of 9k Gold including the very sparkly stones said to be Zircon. The Stones are set in two ways, Channel and Bead or Prong-set. The Clasp is Fold-over, there is no signature or mark. Perhaps this piece was made to showcase the skills of the Jeweler who made it.
My Gemstones of the World Book by Walter Schumann describes Zircon as ranging from colorless to yellow, brown, orange, red, violet, blue, green and with color of streak as white. Mohs' hardness 61/2-71/2, great Brilliance and Intense Fire.
This Bracelet looks like a Diamond Bracelet because of the Brilliance of the Zircons, you will be very delighted with this One of a Kind Piece. This Bracelet reminds me of the old saying "you don't have to have a million buck's to look like you do".
