This bracelet, circa 1950's, is commonly known as a "Cha Cha" bracelet or a "Lucy" bracelet. In the 1950's the cha cha was the dance craze and Lucille Ball was the comedienne of the decade. The decade, despite its cold war problems, was a time of cocktail parties and dinner parties. How easy to look festive and chic by wearing one of these relatively inexpensive bracelets. THis particular bracelet is a notch above the typical bracelet of this type. It has oyster colored glass pearls that are individually attached to a expandable silvertone stretch band. THey are attached by rings which connect onto slots in the bracelet. However, it is the small rhinestones that cap the top of the pearls that makes this bracelet special. Not only do the pearls dangle and swing freely on one's wrist but the addition of the rhinestones give the bracelet an added sparkle and shine. THe bracelet is flexible and fluid. Really gorgeous and what fun! THe bracelet measures 2 1/2" across when closed and 1 1/8" wide. It expands to fit any size wrist. THere are no maker's mark although many were made in Japan. There are no issues with this bracelet. It is thick with pearls and has today's chunky look. Yet the pearls give it a timeless sense while the rhinestones add glamour and glitz. Perfect to wear on a "chocolate assembly line"(reference to Lucy and Ethel's classic TV episode ) or while dancing to "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom Time" ( a popular song of the time).
