This 1940s bracelet by Kreisler features the flexible gold-tone links and tasseled end that were very popular Retro Modern design elements. The company referred to the pattern of these woven links as basket-weave and designed several bracelets, necklaces, and brooches with this link pattern. A decorative buckle adorned with diamanté and ruby-glass stones adds elegance to the design of this bracelet. The matching necklace and brooch were advertised in the March 15, 1946 issue of Vogue.

- ArchivesThis gold bracelet of flexible links in the brickwork pattern is adorned with a pavé fixed-buckle. This elegant Retro Modern piece by Dorsons has a fold-over clasp. Gold-tone costume jewelry of the 1940s with intact finishes is really hard to find. This piece is well preserved because it is gold-filled, rather than just plated. A Dorson’s ad in Vogue for other designs made with the same materials said their stones were hand-set. Please note that dark areas in the photos are reflections of the camera.USD$225.00
