Though unsigned by the maker, this remarkable bangle has the same engraving, clasp and pierced back of the Diamonbar bangles produced by Wachenheimer Brothers in the mid-1920s. This bangle features square-cut golden-topaz-glass stones channel-set in sterling silver and adorned with a diamanté buckle. The pierced back allows light to enhance this unusual color. This bracelet has a built-in safety clasp, which the company called a secret lock. This feature is illustrated on a page from a 1926 wholesaler’s catalog, which is shown in the last photo.
