Hi Terry

Sounds like a perfect location. If I'm ever in the area, I would love that. Thank you very much for your kind offer. The first time I stood face to face with the North sea- it was bitterly cold and windy - but have no explanation - I felt somehow like I was home. Thanks again. Warm Wishes Yvonne

Hi Yvonne thank you for you research on the bracelet it would be interesting to see how an item like this with so much intricate detail is made, the more you hold it in you hand and look at it the more you feel for the person who made this, the stones and the elephants are so nice to look at through a magnifying glass.

I am glad you like Great Yarmouth I live in Gorleston which is in the borough but this is the more up market part, we have the beauty of no golden mile with bars amusements and clubs just a long promenade with cliffs overlooking a golden beach and the north sea so perhaps if you are ever in the area you would like to look me up i would escort you around our delightful town kindest regards Terry xx

Oriental Style Bracelet
by: Anonymous

Hi Terry,

thanks for the further info, and yes, with all due respect, you definitely won't be winning the photographer of the year award =)

FYI some of the most unique work, is made by "desert studio" artists; also highly collectible.

Terry, ladies for some reason, had much smaller wrists in the days of old, i.e Victorian, at turn of the century. "A child's bracelet' in topic heading, I focused research in another direction. It might not be a child's bracelet. There is also the possibility, due to the nature of the construction, that it may have been shortened at a later date, to fit a child, but somehow doubt this.
In the 1920s decade - "Orientalism" enjoyed a vogue in jewelry design, Within intellectual circles in Paris for example, collecting African masks was extremely fashionable and African culture seen as a paradigm of a life lived free of constraints of a dull and bourgeois society. Green stones, such as Jade had an 'oriental' flavor and the color, and gem that looked similar were employed.

best Regards to Great Yarmouth, love the area.
Yvonne

hi Yvonne the picture does not do the bracelet much justice the metal is actually gold colored even though its very thin it is not easily bent and the detail in it is fantastic if this was intended for the tourist market and is just made with cheap materials then i have every admiration for them and their craftsmanship regards Terry

India Baby and Children's Jewelry
by: Yvonne

Hi thank you for writing in an uploading photos of your bracelet. Jewelry for babies and children has a long tradition in jewelry, in India.

Black bead jewelry and gold, for babies, which seems counterintuitive in the democratic west, is traditional baby jewelry in India. See below (this page). The pair of Gold baby bracelets with black beads, is worn as a set, as matching bracelet pair, and has its roots in Ancient Egyptian Jewelry.

Your bracelet has a decidedly ethnic India look to it. The metal, if this is the case, would most likely be a silver alloy; the bracelet could have been made for the tourist market, i.e souvenir jewelry. Not sure.

The green cabochon stones could be turquoise, but if you are planning on selling it, there are turquoise stone imitations, (nowhere near as valuable) even with black veins. If you would like to know how to identify fake turquoise from the genuine, let me know by replying. You can sell jewelry at the jewelry exchange. Read more...





Warm Wishes,
Yvonne
