This bracelet was a real pain to clean! The silver had tarnished quite a bit but I needed to be careful because of the rhinestones.
Some of the stones are not as sparkly anymore but that's fine. I guess this happens to many well loved rhinestone pieces. Otherwise, the bracelet is in great condition.
The bracelet looks to me like an older piece, maybe Art Deco. I was thinking that it might date to around the 1940's or thereabout. I have a few newer sterling tennis bracelets and they appear to be very different in construction and the stones used.
The bracelet is marked F.S. Ster. and has a box closure as well as a safety chain.
When I bought it, I believed that it would be easy to trace to a maker but I was wrong! The only thing I found were a few items with the same mark but no indication who made them.
Any help or comment would be greatly appreciated.
