    Help!! Looking for information on these wire work pieces marked China. Appears to be silver, non magnetic. I'm really curious to learn more!! The wire work appears to be hand done...it's so intricate! Lots of tarnish, but I'm afraid to clean it up until I know more.

      Beautiful set! To me it appears to be silver. I am sure experts here will tell you more. I would not clean it up.

      Nice set!
      Referred as Chinese filigree.
      Please, don't clean it too harsh, I'd clean only the back, patina is nice!

      A rather similar bracelet (but with enamel) there:

      Forgot to welcome you to CW, and to say, rather vintage than ancient :-)

      Another set:
