Pretty honey colored bakelite bangle and necklace, plus amber stretch bracelet.
Online buy. As the seller lives here in Bratislava, she agreed to meet in person. Ste asked only 2 EUR a piece as she thought its a plastic "only".
When we the lady arrived she told me that she asked someone from a jewelry shop to have a look on the lot prior to our meeting. They told her that everything is plastic, except there are a few amber beads in the necklace. She asked the same price for the necklace nevertheless, so I paid 6 EUR in total.
Well I dont know what tests did they do in that jewelry shop, but the stretch bracelet passed both scent test and electrostatic tect as amber. And I tested several beads from the necklace and everything is bakelite and nothing amber. Very pretty honey colored bakelite I would say - as well as the other bangle - both bakelite beauties!
My conscience called and I thought about contacting the lady again to ask her if she wants the stretch bracelet back, as I think its amber. Decided otherwise - she made no difference in the price for the necklace, be it amber, or plastic.
