This was an impulse buy, in other words I had a bit of a gamble. Looking at the original photo's of this item which weren't good, I had a feeling that the bangle might have been gold, I looked at similar bangles of that era and yes most were gold, so I took a punt.
To cut a long story short, when I received it I had reservations, it was very tarnished and there was a faint smell of brass, so no it wasn't what I thought. I did clean it up and the colour came up a beautiful rose gold colour, which I think is rolled gold, definitely not gold as there was still that smell of brass. I tested the stones, I think the red stones are paste, but the small clear stones tested as diamond which I thought was strange.
I would like to know your thoughts, why would they put diamonds in a brass bangle.
Many thanks for looking.
