The very chunky chain is of silver tone metal with two different link designs. However the decorative caps on the charms appear to be silver. (?)

As with all of my vintage jewelry, I did not polish the links before photographing the bracelet...

This brooch is made of copper created using the technique of repousse. I don't know if the coin is really a commemorative coin or a reproduction. However, I do know that he brooch was made during the late 1800's - early 1900's - during the reign of Edward VII. The open "c" catch is another indication of the age of the brooch.

The words surrounding the portrait of Edward read: "Edward VII Dei Gra Britt Omn...

The finely detailed painting was done with oil paints...

This type of domed or "step" design was called a "Princes" style. I don't know of any other name, but this particular ring is unlike any Princess Ring I have seen before - perhaps, because it is a handmade - one of a kind piece? That is just my opinion.

The combination of elements is also unusual: cobalt enamel "petals" set...
