This bracelet is one of my earliest buys, we go back a long time.
Every time I go out wearing it, it always ends up in the jewellers for repair.
This last time it was in the jewellers for well over 14 months, my poor jeweller despairs of this bracelet because I always end up bringing it in for repair, without the seed pearls. I went Scottish dancing, a over enthusiastic person while twirling me grab hold of my wrist and guess what the pearls went flying off in all directions. The last time a wore it was to my sons wedding last year, as I was getting out of a London Black Cab I got my heel caught in the seat belt and went flying and ended up on the floor with beads flying every where, I was so embarrassed I ran into my hotel, not a good idea because I should have picked the pearls up. My jeweller couldn't get hold of the seed pearls, in the end I sent away for them, so this bracelet is now back home.
Now what I was told about it was it was from the Middle East. Gold panels with Emeralds and seeds pearls, it supposedly from the 1920-30s and in the original box.
I have checked the gold and it is 15ct gold, from the diamond selector the Emeralds Dont go above the last green to the first yellow bar, which leads me to believe they are fake.
My question is why would you put fake emeralds into a beautifully made gold panel bracelet.
I would be most interested if anybody has any comments.
Many thanks for looking
