Enjoy these and store as a collection but not sure if they belong together or where they came from . 3rd bracelet in pic 1 has a mark: ALP Italy. All 3 of these have peg closure. 2nd bracelet has grape clusters - maybe coral?

Butterfly in 2 and 3 is marked G. Pulloni Firenze 2x2" pin very dramatic w/brass camels. I wear it w/the link bracelet Pada or Paba - looks Mexican to me. Seen similar w/thin silver 3/4" links. This might have been remade - looks good as it is.

I know the camel earrings were bought in Morroco by my Dad around 1951.

    ALP is probably alpaca, or nickel silver. Do you know if some of the bracelets are from Morocco as well? That's a popular way to make bracelets in Morocco

    Thank you - there are no other marks on the bracelets and I haven't found much about these in my research. I agree - they aren't sterling. The butterfly and camel earrings are a better quality silver but they aren't marked either. You didn't even comment on the leopard print fur pendant. How tacky is that? I don't know what happened to the matching earrings I had.
