We are pleased to offer a highly collectible antique bracelet. The bracelet features a trio of genuine Dragon's Breath glass stones set with a double link of snail chain. Dragon's Breath is a man-made glass stone used in jewelry beginning circa 1900. Genuine Dragon's Breath stones were made by adding metal to the molten glass. This process causes the stones to have blue-ish purple flashes when viewed at certain angles and with proper light sources. The basic colors of the stones are orange to red to pink and may look rather plain until you position them just right.
This bracelet is unsigned and the snail chain appears to be made of brass. It is likely the chain was silver plated at one time. The Dragon's Breath stones are oval and measure approximately 9/16"L x 7/16"W. They are housed in open, pronged settings with fancy impressed backs. There is a spring ring clasp closure.
The bracelet measures approximately 7-1/4" in length. A real treasure!
