The majority of these sorts of bracelets sold at flea markets are junk metal. I took a chance that this one wasn't, and it isn't! There are no marks anywhere. I tested it in several places and also tested the clasp pin. I got a deep red streak under the acid. I've discovered that this is a Turkish Ottoman design bracelet. The Ottoman Empire rule began in 1299 came to an end in 1922. This bracelet could very well be from somewhere in that period.
Thanks for stopping by!
