It has a very secure tongue-and-groove clasp with a graceful curved knob; the bracelet also appears to have the original safety chain. The cut work is intact; the hollowed areas within are oxidized to dramatically set off the designs. There are some minor dings in the sides of a few panels...

A heavy 70grams and sizable 1.25in. wide bracelet made by Hector Aguilar. A pre 1948 piece that is a surprise to wear because it does NOT fit in a round shape. It takes the shape more like a stop sign with almost straight lines coming off the balls that ingeniously hide the hinges. This bracelet is just shy of 7in. in length. The balls take up wearable length in this style and most that I have seen are short and become even shorter when on. This one is comfortable to wear...
