Seven faceted oval midnight blue rhinestones are cradled within Baroque style basket settings with high relief repousse castings of floral and foliage designs. Wonderfully ornate. A rich presentation of mystic midnight blue enveloped in chased silvery caskets. The work is incorporated into the stones' settings, the leafy portions serving as prongs for the rhinestones. Vertically scored connectors link each stone. A fold over clasp secures. The reverse of bracelet features bracing -- construction often seen on Selro and other important makers. Top quality materials and workmanship abound in this '50s vintage bracelet.
The bracelet is approximately 6 3/4 inches with fold over clasp x 3/4 inch wide with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Oval glass stones are approximately 18 millimeters x 14 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet is about 58 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining rich velvety blue color and superb, subdued sparkle. No off, cloudy or dead stones. One of the stones near the end has a flea bite on it's table and there are a few minor surface scratches here and there. All patinated silver tone finish intact, front and back. All links secure. All back bracing intact. Clasp strong and secure. Age commensurate wear only. Extremely clean. No damage -- save flea bite and minor scratches as noted -- no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The bracelet is not signed. It has many characteristics of some famous makers' works but we are unable to make a positive identity. It dates circa 1950s.
Repousse and rhinestones. A royal flash. From Cody's.
