Carnelian Vintage Bracelet GREAT Ethnic Persian Silver 1970s Jewelry $175

Carnelian Vintage Bracelet GREAT Ethnic Persian Silver 1970s Jewelry


Made in the 1970s, this hand made Persian bracelet is a spectacular vintage design with huge Carnelian gems.

The bracelet is not signed however designs like this were predominately made in India, Morroco, and Tunisia. It is sad to say that we don't see much jewelry coming to the US from these regions today. Metal makers in some of these regions have turned their production efforts into making knives, guns, and ammo.

I truly admire this bracelet as the Carnelian gems are polished natural shapes, vary in hue, and are very translucent and alive. The bracelet is not sterling silver but rather a smelted mix of nickel, pewter, and zinc. All of the links are hand made and irregular in shape and size. The Carnelian cabs are set in hand made custom bezels with soldered rope frames.

Finished with a large fish hook style clasp, the bracelet can be hooked between 7 1/4" and 8 3/4" long or 18.4 cm to 22 cm.

The entire bracelet both front and back is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the Carnelian cabs are perfect with no cracks, chips, or scratches. There is no silver metal wear or loss of silver and no scratches or dings.

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation bracelet box.
