    So I brought this one out of the safe for you guys.
    This is an 18 carat gold bracelet I inherited from my grandmother 10 years ago. Its really heavy, but its not very spectacular. I'm sure every woman had one like this in the past. I dont know how old it is though. In my opinion you could still buy something like this new. Nowadays nobody I know wears heavy gold anymore. And I dont wear it either.
    Both my grandmothers loved jewelry so it runs in the family. My eldest daughter loves jewelry too, she's a bit of a tomboy and she looses everything I give her, so she has to wait some years before the really neat pieces come her way :-)
    So does anybody know which period this bracelet is from?
    Thanks a lot!

      This looks like it is from the 1980's. Tailored jewelry was most popular in the 1950's. I always thought the reason was that war was over, times were good and women could spend on clothes and jewelry but they fashion was a bit conservative.

      The clasp looks 1980's - great bracelet and could be worn at the right event tonight! Your oldest daughter will love your collection.

      I agree with Valentino
      You didn't give us what the marks were though, can't tell you where its from without that

      You are right Newtimes and what a coincidence I have almost the same bracelet inherited from my grandmother ( ) aand that's why I know the time period this bracelet is from
      the 50/60's I'm quite sure about that. Let it in store (as mine) it will return in fashion as almost all jewelry and fasion do.

      I was going to jump on the 80s bandwagon...

      Thanks a lot for your comments and loving everyone.
      Agram, your bracelet looks indeed just like mine, it has the same style.
    6. Newtimes Newtimes, 9 years ago
      Stillwater, you are right of course. So I looked at the stamps, There are three:
      750: thats the gold content
      * 303 VI : I have no idea about that one
      FOPE : thats apparently the company and so its form Italy! I dont know it though...
      WOW, I solved my mystery myself :-)
      Does anybody know what the * 303 VI stamp means ?
    7. davyd286, 9 years ago
      If the company is Italian, than that number is their official registry number, and the two letters stand for the region (Monticello Conte Otto).

      thanks davyd286 for your help, my mystery is solved
      and thanks AmberRose, Bridget, Woman34, vetraio50, manikin, valentino97, mustangtony, moonstonelover and bratjdd for the love...So many!
