Elegant jewelry like this three-strand simulated pearl bracelet is timeless. The beads in this bracelet are luminous; spacer bars of clear sparkling rhinestones set in plated silver-tone metal give a lovely visual break and add a dash of elan. The decorative clasp echoes the look of the spacers with three rows of rhinestones. Note that the beads near the clasp are graduated in size, a thoughtful design feature. While reviewing one of my jewelry reference books (100 Years of Collectible Jewelry), I came across a photo of the original fine jewelry piece that inspired this bracelet. The attention to detail is amazing … this is a well-designed, well-made piece. The bracelet is from the 1950s and has never been worn. Its original foil tag, marked Candida Simulated Pearl, is still attached. The bracelet is 7-1/2 inches long and is in excellent condition. Note that the pearls are "simulated:" at the time, this meant that they are made of organic material to truly simulate the look of real pearls, unlike "faux" pearls, which are coated glass or plastic.
