1940s Pips & Shapes Gemstone Slide Charm Bracelet in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A charming 1940s slide bracelet, modeled in 14k gold, whose closely proportioned, gem-set charms are each a different geometric shape, and whose gemstones are placed like pips on card faces. These chunky little charms slide along the bracelet's two lengths of gold cable chain, separated by pairs of gold spacer beads— they feature a colorful variety of gemstones: sapphire, opal, turquoise glass, amethyst, blue and white zircon, coral, pearl, ruby and garnet. The "different but same" quality of this design is especially winning, and we like the idea of card suits, pips, numbers, and the symbolic possibilities they open up. All of these charms have hand-engraved details and a lovely Florentine finish. Closure is a box clasp, fitted with a safety chain. Marked 14k, for purity.
