I LOVE this so much! It is signed "K.J.L.", which dates it to 1960s when Kenneth Jay Lane first started his jewelry line. It looks very much like the pink Kenneth Jay Lane bangle I posted before, but with some notable differences. It is wider but less dimensional as the cabochons used are flatter. This bracelet only uses a single tone of turquoise cabochon, and the larger cabochons are prong-set. I realize that this is a common trait of authentic vintage versions of this bracelet compared to the newer ones. The inner circumference is more oval, and there is a more obvious space between the hinge. If you open this bangle up, you will find a mechanical watch hidden inside that still runs beautifully. The face is signed "Louis Freedhand", "17 JEWELS", and "INCABLOC". When buying this, always make sure that all the cabochons are in tact, and the watch can still run and keep proper time.
