    Arts and Crafts or Chinese? Turquoise and silver, sadly the clasp tongue is broken and a part of the turquoise on one oval is chipped, but I am going to restore it. Any ideas with regard to the origin?

      Hi, welcome to CW! Always pleased when some fine jewellery pops :-)
      Back construction of your bracelet make me think Arts and Crafts, though front leaves and flowers look Chinese...
      I posted a ring with same style:

      Let's see what other think!

      Hello and welcome to CW. First glance I would say Bernard Instone, after discussions on my other posts, I would say Shipton & co I hope Jewels1900 would agree.

      Sorry for budding in: Does anyone think that my pin could also be in this style? I have not been able to find out anything:(

      Hi freiheit, no I don't think it is, but I'll have a search see if I come up with anything.
    9. freiheit freiheit, 7 years ago
      Thanks a lot, Peasejean55. I didn't really think so either. I wasn't able to find anything at all on this one. Any help would be great:)
    10. BelleChambers BelleChambers, 7 years ago
      Shipton is almost a certainty
    11. BelleChambers BelleChambers, 7 years ago
      Oh, I mean about my piece.

      This is by Shipton & Co. I posted some similar bracelets and other Shipton items a little while ago. You can still find the photos.

      They make for great wearing. It's a shame about the clasp, I believe they are hard to fix. But you'll want to try because the claps are nicely made.
    14. BelleChambers BelleChambers, 7 years ago
      They are indeed a devil to repair, the whole tongue needs replacing to make a proper job. Do you think that it was HALLMARKED on the clasp? Did Shipton always mark their pieces? I have contemplated soldering it shut, it will slide over my hand that way, snugly but secure, since this one has the damaged stone as well and I am keeping it not selling it?
      THANKS EVERYBODY FOR HELP WITH THIS !
    15. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 7 years ago
      Hi Bella, these are sometimes marked on the back of the clasp, sometimes not. Marks range for Sterling, S & Co and sometimes a date hallmark. That yours is unsigned is pretty standard. Hope that helps.
