There is an interesting story that goes with this bracelet!
There is a pawn shop here which we visit probably every month or so, and often have found some lovely vintage rings at very reasonable prices!
One such time in 2011, I spotted this bracelet in the display case. It looked quite old to me and peering, I thought i could see hallmarks on some of the links. The price tag was turned around so I couldn't read it.
I asked the salesman if I could have a look at it(just out of interest because I knew I would probably not be able to afford it anyway)! When I had it in my hand I could see it was hallmarked on every link......that has to be good.... so I turned over the price tag, tried to be really casual lol, and said yes, I will take this one thank you!!
Over to the register we went, the bracelet was scanned and the attendant says......oh this is wrong...I will have to see the manager.......which he did, and came back with a " This was supposed to be $390.00 but we will let you have this for $350.00
Naturally I was not happy, but not really expecting to buy it for the $48.00, yes $48.00 on the price tag and not wanting to make a scene, I left the store!! Put that one down to experience!
One month later, same store, same salesman, same bracelet, same procedure, same $48.00 price tag.........I got my bracelet for $48.00. I think they knew there would be a scene this time!!!
Sorry, that was a bit long hey..... hope you like this bracelet, I think it pretty much speaks for itself and hopefully you can see the 9ct hallmarks on the links and back of padlock as well as the lovely detail on the sides of the padlock.
