1940s Vintage Thermoset Hinged Bracelet Black Rhinestones Jewelry
This fabulous bracelet has four rows of black rhinestones on raised carved panels, a style seen on Weiss pieces, though it is not marked. The other side of the bracelet is smooth. The test for Bakelite (using 409 and Simichrome) resulted in a black residue, which I've seen on some reworked Bakelite pieces. The bracelet certainly "clangs" like Bakelite. The material has fine age-related scratches on it, and all of the rhinestones are intact and appear to be original. At rest, the bracelet has a two inch diameter, but it opens easily for a larger wrist. It is 3/4 inch wide. This is one of my favorite styles of vintage bracelets, and I think you will also love it.
It will be shipped in a gift box.
