I love these old expansion bracelets, this one a lovely faux pearl and marked Japan inside the silver metal expansion bracelet. Not sure what the silver metal is, but it does not tarnish and is in very good condition, with the expansion working fine all around. Mounted on this bracelet are the lovely faux pearls in a shade of vintage creamy white, each tipped with a tiny rhinestone (don't we wish they were diamonds?), and what makes this bracelet so much fun is they swish around a little when worn, very elegant to be sure, but also a little bohemian. No maker marks on this unique item. I had some expansion bracelets back in the fifties, and I LOVED them, mine were the plainer rhinestone, I would have just died for one this lovely.
