These are pin/slot closure silver bracelets from Italy. I think from 1940's-50's but I'm not sure. They range from 5/8" to 1" wide. The first one has grapes, twisted wire and oxidized black treatment and maybe coral?

The only one w/marks is the widest one in 1 & 2 with pink glass but would love if it is coral. It's marked ALP Italy. Just now one is posted on ebay w/green chrysophrase identical to mine in perfect condition and asking over $100.

The insides of all 3 are worn - someone besides me (the last owner) enjoyed wearing them.

    They might have been tourist items. Thanks Nadia and Amber - yes we love chunky, funky stuff from the 40's and 50's don't we? - and other well-made old stuff. New costume jewelry is really disappointing.

    These deserve some more attention, I love them!

    Thank you Elisabethan! I usually wear them all together and they get attention. Maybe this is coral. I'm sure there are pins and earrings out there but....I don't have any! I have a few other similar that I'll post later. Thanks for loving my obsession!

    Thank you also for love: gargoyle, crazymnkee, pops, agh, and Ken!

    Thank you Martika! Your ring seems most like the middle bangle - I am not ruling out Tibet or Morocco.
