Gorgeous fancy filigree metalwork and brilliant sunburst orange red glass cabochons in various shapes and sizes are throughout this magnificent set. The bracelet has curved stations to make it easy to wear and the center section has coils and scrolls of metalwork, a larger oval center cabochon and four flanking round ones. There are two somewhat smaller stations on either side with the same coils and bright deep sunburst orange that is so deep, it is almost red, glass polished cabochons. The stones are a reddish orange color and a very deep color that could pass for either deep reddish orange, or an orange-red color. The bracelet is seven (7) inches long and one (1) inch at its widest with a hidden V spring and clasp for that ‘never ending’ look. The pin is a large round pin that is 1 ¾” in diameter with the same motif and design. Both pieces are marked CZECHO. I have supplied an adapter and chain that when slid onto the pin, turn it into a pendant necklace. It is removable and does not damage the pin in any way and really makes this set versatile. The current neck chain is seventeen (17) inches, but any chain that the adapter loop accepts in any length can be used. The metal is likely Tombac, a metal alloy developed in Czechoslovakia that is similar to Pinchbeck. Both pieces are exceptional in quality, are lovely, in excellent condition and can be worn together or alone. The pendant necklace also looks great with other chains. A gorgeous set, the colors play against each other and are so rich looking, this collectible bracelet and pin with a converter and chain turning it into a pendant necklace, will make an excellent addition to any collection, are very wearable and durable.
