This very graceful sterling silver bracelet is hinged with half domes and wonderful bezel set oval shaped abalone stones surrounded by tiny domed roping around the edging is just marvelous. The abalone is smooth in an oval shape, with natural striations that shimmer when the light strikes. It is 7 inches long plus 1/4 of an inch is the tongue for the hidden box closure at the other end. It is 1/2 inch wide and each abalone piece is 3/4 of an inch long. Perfect for a smaller wrist, this wonderful bracelet is very well made and a little more dainty than most Mexican hand crafted bracelets from the 1940's and 50's.. Each of the 5 links in slightly curved for a flattering fit and is 1 and 1/2 inches long. The tongue part has the eagle 2 assay, and the back of the last link near the box clasp has LLA, Mexico, 925 in a circle. This hallmark can be seen on page 233 of Bille Hougart's respected sourcebook, THE LITTLE BOOK OF MEXICAN SILVER TRADE AND HALLMARKS, 2006 ed. This beauty is sturdy but looks delicate and feminine, and the vintage silver has a smooth feel and warm patina. The thick, brilliant striated abalone has outstanding purples, blues, greens and pinks that catch and reflect its colors with the light. The abalone is smooth to the touch and more luminous than my photos show. In perfect condition, this is a gorgeous addition to any collection that you will want to wear all the time!
