Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Wachenheimer Bros. JewelryThis amethyst bangle bracelet from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut glass stones channel-set in sterling silver with engraved edges. This piece is wider and more substantial than its contemporaries. In fact, its size, weight, design, and components are nearly identical to one of my own Lady Gloria Hinged Bracelets by Wachenheimer Brothers. This piece is unsigned on the tongue (where Diamonbar bangles were marked), so I can't be sure. Either way, this bracelet is so beautiful and well-made that you won't be disappointed. It was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.
