This picture doesn't do justice to the lovely carnelian, green sardonyx and 14k gold bracelet I found in a San Diego thrift store for $16.00 in the early 90's. In one of my research books I found "slave bracelets from 1923 & later after Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun were very popular in many color combinations:" pink & black, brown & green, clear crystal & blue to name a few. I believe they sold for $12.00. This is definitely an art deco bracelet with its beautiful pyramid shape stone.
Does anyone else have one like this? I took it to Antiques Roadshow several years ago and I knew more than they did! They weren't that impressed with it but in all my prowling around I haven't ever found one this large and dramatic.
