      Hi Rose!
      Ooh only one... Sad... But, better one than none :-D

      The name for system is screw-back non pierced , it became in use when ladies didn't want anymore to get their ear pierced, from 1910.

      It looks Mexican to me.
      I feel your pain. I have a whole bunch of "divorced" earrings. I used to turn them into charms and necklaces when my girls were little - but I gave up:(
    4. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Hi Rose - yes, Mexican anywhere from 30's to 50's. Onyx. I have some divorced Mexican earrings too. will post for you. Like Gudrun and I believe -they can have a new life - and sometimes I accomplish that.

      Yes, it looks very much like my bracelet! I always thought it looked Mexican, too. Thanks for commenting. Guess we both have mysteries to be solved!

      I have this bracelet, like cassandra’s , only black and silver. Bakelite, pretty sure. It’s so pretty when polished! My sister found it at an antique show, I hounded her until she gave it to me. The only bad thing is the little pins that hold the sections together catch in clothing. I think that’s why she finally gave in. Love it.
