I wish there was more I could say about this bracelet. There is only a story behind it. As a little child, my mother often when and helped an elderly lady that lived across the street. My mother looked up to this woman as if she were my mother's own grandmother. When my mother bacame a teenager, the little old woman gave my mother this gift. Since the woman had no children of her own, she passed it down to my mother. The lady was originally from Czechoslovakia and was a calendar girl. She received this bracelet for doing a shoot. There are no markings on it so there really is no way for me to look this up. I would love to know more about it. It is such a beautiful piece of jewelry and has so much history to tell if I only knew where to look. Either way, I just thought it is too beautiful not to share it with each and all of you. God Bless.

    It is a gorgeous piece. I am hoping someone knows a little something about it. I with I would had typed my description up in word or something. I was so tired when I did it that I made several spelling errors. Oh well. Lol. It's about the jewelry not so much proper English. :)

    It does appear that there are stones in there. Some are white/cream colored. Others are turquoise colored. Not sure what kind of stones they may be. I did do some research and it appears they also used glass pieces during that era but when I put the bracelet under a magnifying glass, I could not see through the pieces. This led me to believe that they are stones of some sort. I could be wrong though. I know nothing about vintage jewelry :)

    I would love to see it through a glass. Are there any intials or numbers in the centres of any of the flowers? I was thinking Baccarat but it is just a wild guess. Its a beautiful piece of work. Thanks for showing it.

    Frankie, it is hard to tell. I have tried to look for something that would distinguish it but am having very little luck. If there is anything, it "blends" in very well. I did learn that there are turquoise stones. They said they could not say what the off-white/white stones were. They said either Pearl or Ivory. I asked a close friend of the family to take a look at it. He is a jeweler. But that is as far as he got. He isn't familiar with antiques :(
