In the 19th century, it seems like all over the world women were watching and waiting for men.... at sea, at war, at adventure, at the corner pub. I love the "woman waiting" genre and this bracelet is the finest assortment of waiting women I've seen on one piece of jewelry! (Maybe the pair of waiting woman are having too much fun?) It is probably from the mid-19th century, made in Italy, and it is set in tested sterling silver. The clasp is not the greatest nor original to the piece, but this one works fine. The bracelet is 7" long; each cameo is 1 & 1/4" by 1". As you can see, the detail of the carving is wonderful. I especially like the storm-tossed ship, as mother and child huddle together watching from a break wall. There are no cracks hiding in these shells. It has been well-loved obviously :)
