Lapis & Sterling 1920s Bracelet
7 1/8" x 1/2"
"STERLING" on back of 2 silver links
This lapis bracelet features sugar-loaf stones (3/8″ high) set in sterling silver that alternate with square glass links in a darker blue. The links and settings are sterling silver. This type of bracelet was called a slave bracelet when it was made in the late 1920s and 1930s. This piece, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, is from my personal collection. I’m reluctantly offering it for purchase. Scroll down to see some lapis Art Deco pieces that look lovely with this jewel.
