We are pleased to offer a wonderful vintage bracelet It is made of 950 silver, lapis lazuli and tiger eye. The bracelet is marked: "950, PLATA" and is an early artisan or Mexican piece, most likely from the Arts & Crafts era with an Egyptian revival theme.
The centerpiece of the bracelet is blue lapis lazuli stone with tiger eye and a silver pharaoh's head. The bracelet measures approximately 7-1/4" in length and has a push-in tongue clasp and a fold over safety catch. The weight, including the stones, is 45.7 grams or 1.61 ounces.
We have asked our Master Jeweler/Gemologist for an assessment of the bracelet. He dates it pre-1950 and believes it most likely originated in Mexico or Spain. It is truly a unique piece in very good condition.
