    I posted this 2 yrs ago without research pages. This picture doesn't do justice to the lovely carnelian, green sardonyx and 14k gold bracelet I found in a San Diego thrift store for $16.00 in the early 90's. In one of my research books I found "slave bracelets from 1923 & later after Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun were very popular in many color combinations:" pink & black, brown & green, clear crystal & blue to name a few. I believe they sold for $35-$38.

    Thank you to all who enjoyed this bracelet. I wanted to give you some more background.

      Why do you call it a slave bracelet? I always thought that those were bracelets with a chatelaine chain to a ring. Great score
    2. valentino97 valentino97, 9 years ago
      Yes the catalog picture shows the same bracelet in black & white for $35. They don't go into a descriptioon of the term. Could be the influence and popularity of Egyptian inspired jewelry? Or maybe Rudolph Valentino's Shiek movies?

      Just found a similar one on eBay
    4. valentino97 valentino97, 9 years ago
      Wow look how much they want for it! It does have more gold than mine. The antiques roadshow appraiser said mine was an example of "poor man's fine jewelry" and was worth $200. But $35 in 1927 would have been a lot of money. I don't plan to sell it though since this poor gal loves it very much. Thank you for finding this on ebay and showing it to me.

      Thanks Stillwater for the ebay connection - it sold for more than $1200!! and it wasn't as pretty as mine.
