1942-1947 (based on maker's mark and use of sterling, per Brunialti)
"TRIFARI" with crown (very worn) and "STERLING"
Oval prong-set ruby-glass stones alternate with pave-embellished scroll-shaped links in this gold-plated sterling silver 1940s Retro Modern bracelet by Trifari. This piece closes with a fold-over clasp.
Rhodium plating with channel-set and prong-set diamanté form this well-made Art Deco bracelet. It has excellent articulation and a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety catch. This bracelet is probably European in origin. The pairs of horizontal semi-circular components that are above and below the square openings look like German components I have in other pieces. This stunning bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 3/4") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. Also note that the photos suggest yellowing of stones that is not present.
Gilded sterling silver links with corded wire spirals hold collet-set faux aquamarines in this fabulous Art Deco bracelet by Fahrner. It is an excellent example of the type of filigree the maker is known for. This bracelet has a hidden tongue-in-grove clasp. I have a sterling Fahrner necklace that looks lovely with this bracelet – scroll down to see it.
Sparkling baguette and round diamanté form this elegant 1950s bracelet by Hattie Carnegie. It is much more lively and beautiful than the pictures show and certainly worthy of her signature. The rhodium-plated setting, substantial weight, and hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with safety chain speak to the quality of her pieces. This bracelet can be worn with diamanté earrings by another great maker of this era -- scroll down to see my Eisenberg earrings.
Panels of flowers and leaves joined with decorative links, all in sterling silver, form this 1940s bracelet. As in all of Hobé's work in this era, this piece was hand-made. It closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. This bracelet is longer than most from this period. You could wear this beautiful piece with any of my Hobé brooches with a floral motif – scroll down to see a selection.
