This bracelet features 5 very detailed micro mosaics each measuring 30mm by 25mm. The detail is just AMAZING. I am pretty positive it is set in 14kt yellow gold. It is broken it has an old repair job that was done poorly with lead. The clasp says 1/20 12k GF which would mean it is gold filled but I acid tested the broken part and it stated 14k. Which leads me to believe the clasp was added at the same time as the repair. I did take it to a jeweler who said the metal was very easy to scratch leading him to think it was gold too. But he was unwilling to acid test it. I would love some help figuring out who the maker is or really anything to help me value it. I bought it in Illinois USA. I saw a lady named "Agram.m" had a brooch EXTREMELY similar to my bracelet I was hoping she might see this and be able to help me :) I paid $20 for it.

    Hello, sorry that I did not respond earlier but I saw your beautiful bracelet just now. Marvelous old piece of Micro Mosaic and you had a tremendous bargain $ 20 I only can dream of such luck!
    It's a piece of Micro mosaic work from the middle of the 19th century from women in traditional dress. Perhaps you could learn more of Micro Mosaic if you read my article on my page: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/user/Agram.m/micro-mosaic-and-pietra-dura
    If you have more questions please ask. I will fill in the email on this item so I get your question immediately. If you ever want to sell you know where to find me.
    You're very very lucky with this magnifique piece!!
