My friend just showed this to me. Because I am a new jewelry designer she knew I would enjoy seeing the quality of the workmanship in this charm bracelet. She (nor I) have any idea where to check to find out more information concerning this detailed solid 14K gold bracelet/ charms, articulated bracelet with gemstones (rubies, pearls, emeralds, sapphires).
A friend of her mother had been married to Nicky Hilton and he had this bracelet designed for her in the 40's (approx). They ended up getting divorced and she had given to her friend, (my friends mother) to hold on to just in case she needed any money. She didn't since she found another wealthy husband, so had told her friend she could keep it since she enjoyed wearing it all the time. When my friends mother passed away, being the only daughter, the charm bracelet went to her, over much haggling by her brother who really wanted it.
Quite a few years ago, it had been appraised for quite a bit, but my friend has no idea where or when it was designed. If anyone could give her any type of help, she would greatly appreciate it.
