We call this 'the Happy bracelet' because it isn't often you find one that's smiling back at you.
This is a fine Mexican sterling silver cuff bracelet with a hand-worked overlay of stylized flowers. There's one on each side and the one in the middle has a happy face. The flower under the face looks like a tutu. It was designed by a silversmith with a quirky sense of humor and deft hand.
The bracelet is impressive in size. It measures 1 3/4 inches wide at center and tapers to 1 inch at sides. The inner circumference is 6 1/2 inches end to end with another 3/4 inch for the opening...total 7 1/4 inches around. It goes on sideways on the wrist and has a slight bit of flex. The bracelet is solid and weighs 63.5 grams (over 2 ounces).
The inside corner is marked MEXICO 925. The bracelet is in excellent condition. Circa 1980s.
