1950's Victorian Revival Slide Bracelet

Back in the 1950's when this piece was made, you could walk into a jewelry store and design a slide bracelet specific to you and your story. You'd choose the links, and then you could bring in your family's stick pins and have them converted into decorative elements for the bracelet, or choose other pieces available in the shop to adorn the bracelet and make it your own.

This is a stunning example of this mid-century style of slide bracelet, in a Victorian revival style as was the trend of the time. Eight panels are lined end-to-end, featuring a variety of semi-precious gemstones, as well as a cameo and a snake motif. The variety of colors - everything from vibrant citrine and amethyst to moody onyx and garnet - offer an eclectic look for every outfit. The panels/links themselves also come in a fetching array of shapes, from an oval, to rectangles, circles, a star, and a few abstract shapes.

This would make for a wonderful anniversary gift or significant birthday present. See this piece on video!
