    I bought this ivory linked bracelet and some other ivory jewelry in a nearby monastry some years ago. There is a very old monk who used to live in Congo years ago. He brought back lots of ivory and ebony in the pre-ban period. Once a year during a very big festival in our city he sells the remaining pieces in the monastry. Every year he has less and less. When I visited his 'shop' this year he almost had no ivory left. So I m glad I bought some jewelry a couple of years ago.
    This bracelet dates from the fourties. You can clearly see the schreger lines on the ivory. The one thing that bothers me is the lock: it opens really fast and I fear loosing my bracelet when I wear it.
    I hope you enjoy it!

      Love this bracelet - very nice. I know I've posted this before - just put a piece of clear tape on the back and then remove later. No one notices the tape if you cut it to fit. Plus, you will feel the tape and that reminds you you are wearing this wonderful bracelet.
