Vintage 1940's hand wrought 980 / 1000 silver fineness ( higher in silver content than sterling-925 ) bracelet comes from the famous silver artisan area of Taxco, Mexico and for over 68 years it has stood the test of time beautifully it is in excellent vintage condition. Fitting a size 7 inch and smaller wrist while its actual measurements are 7 1/4 inches to the end of the loop on the slide of the clasp and its overall length measurement is 7 3/4 inches with a total of 8 links. The slide end of the clasp bears the, pre-eagle ( or pre-1948 stamp ) Taxco and 980; the bracelet is quite hefty and tips the scales at 56.7 grams. Each link has a cylinder shaped black stone held in place with silver ropes which wrap it in an open box and each box is atop one of six half moons. There are a couple of the half moons that bear some slight flattening or dimples, if you look at it from the side, these are difficult to notice otherwise. (Please also note in the photo of the reverse side of the bracelet the the shiny pink tint to its back side is a reflection of my clothing the day I photographed, it is silver in color.) Other than what has been previous noted we can find only light wear to the finish, nothing that detracts from the bracelet's stunning appeal and that, that affirms its age and authenticity. It will be a timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe which will add a striking stand-alone statement with lasting appeal and the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles!
