A lovely vintage solid Sterling Silver hinged Bangle made by the English Silversmith company Monomil Ltd., which has their patented locking mechanism which serves as a concealed clasp. The two ends of the Bangle slide together and lock into place so the bangle can be fastened easily but holds securely. The Bangle also has a safety chain. The Bangle is marked with the British Sterling Silver assay marks for 1968 and 'Monomil Pat.App.For' - the patent for the locking clasp was granted in 1969.
The Bangle has a lightly ribbed surface pattern which is broken in the middle with a polished cut pattern. It measures 1/2 inch wide and has an internal diameter of 7 1/2 inches - for comfort I would recommend this for a smaller wrist measuring about 6 inches. The Bangle weighs 30 grams.
The Bangle is in good condition with no damage.
