    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 (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/46548-vintage-yellow-gold-14k-bracelet-from-ab ) 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.

      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, 7 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).
