    One of the favorite genres of charms are embossed hearts, known as répoussé, puffed or puffy hearts. Antique and vintage répoussé hearts are typically made of silver and are hollow, created by joining together two heart-shaped stampings, or by folding a doubled heart in half. Generally répoussé hearts have one decorative side and another that is unembellished (and often engraved). These hearts were popular from circa 1890 - 1910 (described as Victorian hearts) and then had a revival from the late 1930s through the fifties.

    This charm bracelet is another lucky survivor. Owned and treasured by Hazel Latamier Yates (1919-2003) whose husband and friends gave her charms over many years, many of which are highly sought after. It was passed down to a niece, who sold it to a wonderful woman who chose to keep it intact.

    This bracelet is exceptional in quality, an authentic, original 1940s piece, with nothing added or subtracted. The centerpiece is a daisy enamel locket with a photo inside of Lucille, Hazel's best friend. There are 7 enamel hearts, including one guilloché, 1 rhinestone-set heart, a very desirable lion's head heart, and one additional enamel charm with a total of 20 charms. These are attached to a marvelous sterling silver book chain. All charms are marked sterling and most have names or initials of the people who gifted the hearts to Hazel..
