Atomic Space Age Vintage Bracelet Spinning Orbs 1950s Jewelry $145

Atomic Space Age Vintage Bracelet Spinning Orbs 1950s Jewelry


You can call this vintage bracelet Mid Century Modern or Retro Modern, but what I call is it a wild and rare Atomic Space Age design!

I often wonder where women who designed a bracelet like this one got their inspiration. ( Yes, it was mostly women who came up with designs like this, and the man owned company they worked for, took the credit!) It is obvious this crazy spinning orb design was inspired by the solar system.

There are three strands of glossy black thermoset plastic orbs that look and feel like glass. The orbs spin freely inside the gold plated thick metal rings. Look at the ornate, wide, gold metal findings on the ends of the bracelet. These are a style you don't often see and they date the bracelet to the 1945-1955 era. The bracelet is not signed but Im certain not many were made. In my 30+ years of collecting vintage jewelry, this is the only one I've ever seen.

When clasped, the bracelet is 8" or 20.3 cm long. It is about 1 3/4" or 45 mm wide. The orb links are 1/2" or 13 mm each.

The entire bracelet is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. There are no scratches or dings and no gold wear or loss of gold. All of the black orbs are clean and glossy. The original fold over box clasp is in perfect working order.

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