This antique silver watch chain was the source of my passion for antique jewelry. I've already told to some subscribed jewels. This bracelet I got from the friend of my mother and it was such a good friend that we children called her aunt. It was on the occasion of my fourteenth birthday. I wore it as a bracelet and I remember that it was very special because my friends often wore charm bracelets that were then in fashion. I am talking now about early 60s. This afore mentioned aunt had apparently been crazy about antique silver because she possesed many beautiful antique silver bracelets, which I already really liked at that time.
This lady has been dead for years already, if she were alive today she would have some 110 years at this moment.
This sterling silver watch chain I fortunately still preserved, not so very special as antique jewelry, although the decoration is beautiful.
For me that was a first introduction to antique jewelry to this day my hobby and passion even became and remained and I collected ever since my first earned salary.
