This Trifari bracelet was made during WWII, when costume jewelry makers had to use sterling silver because base metals were limited to war-related manufacturing. This piece features pairs of facing scroll-shaped links adorned with diamanté. Each pair is separated by a pair of faceted, oval, prong-set ruby-glass stones. Simple flat gold links hold the elements together and end with a fold-over clasp. The red stones really complement the gold-washed setting. This lovely bracelet can be worn anytime, anywhere.
