2 gorgeous finds a few years ago online for under $20 each. I wanted wide red bangles and these were offered as bakelite. I kept asking the seller what they were and finally felt confident that they were new resin or acrylic. The price was right so why not. Yes, I tested them - not bakelite. I've worn the 1-5/8" with concentric carving the most. I have to dress up a little for work at retail accounts and shopping malls so I'm not nervous about banging or chipping these. The other one is 2-1/8" - gaudy - yes, but looks great with my black work uniform. I've never seen these at retail so they are nice limited-production bangles.
Both these were for sale online as bakelite, so be careful. In the past few years I've challenged sellers but there's still a few out there listed at $250. The other colors were yellow, orange and green. I don't think black was offered online.
