This 30's bracelet has lovely design. The somewhat square connector links contain three rows of identical pattern. Each row contains four small marcasites separated by a mil-grained top raised zigzag. The rectangular links contain beautiful collar mounted oval cabochons of periwinkle (lavender blue) colored chalcedony. Surrounding the cabochons are four open work areas. The link then contains selective mil-grained rims, ten small marcasites and two clear baguette cut quartzes. The links have a graceful light curve which assists in the bracelet having a comfortable and good fit around the wrist
The sterling is in excellent plus condition with no rips, dents, holes, cracks, scratches, abrasions or repairs. The closure flange gives a nice click when inserted and stays firmly closed. The additional figure 8 clasp is a bit loose. The marcasites all appear to be there but it is impossible to tell if they are all original. One is missing it's faceted top but as they are only approx. 1/32" big you don't notice this unless you do an intense inspection. The oval chalcedony stones are all intact with no cracks, nicks, chips, abrasions or scratches. They all appear to be original as I see no disruption to their collars and they are extremely well matched in color. The clear baguettes are all intact and appear to be the originals. These cut quartz stones are not found often and only in the nicest European silver jewelry. The marks are on the backside of one of the connector links and read: "GERMANY" and "STERLING". The bracelet measure 7" long not counting the closure flange and is 11/16" at widest point.
