The buckle motif has been used in jewelry since the Victorian Era and had a huge resurgence in the 1920s through the 1940s. Van Cleef & Arpels was the first to design the buckle bracelet in 1935; all of the top jewelers soon followed including Tiffany & Co and Cartier.

This particular bracelet is a true classic yet with unusual styling. Though unsigned, it appears to have been manufactured by the jewelers who worked for both Tiffany & Cartier as they both sold this exact bracelet. Composed of 14kt yellow gold, platinum, diamonds and rubies, one striking difference in this from many other buckle bracelets is the wonderfully flexible textured strap, giving this a 3 dimensional, machine age look to it. The underside however, is as soft as silk on the wrist. The substantial clasp is indeed a marvel as well adjusting to fit any wrist with its largest size extending to 7.25 inches by means of a very finely made lock within the clasp itself.

3 is the charm in this set of 18kt white, rose and yellow gold Italian braided bracelets. As you can see, they are stunning together adding just enough extra style to make them THE stand out accessory. Of course, lonely as they may be for their companion pieces, they do look wonderful when worn singly as well. Beautifully made and purchased in Italy in the 1980s, they came from a woman who adored them and was sad to say good-bye. These beauties will go with everything in your closet, from jeans to your little black dress.

Metals: 18kt Rose, White & Yellow Gold

Measurement: Approximately 7 1/2" in length

Though I haven't carried 'new' jewelry very much, I couldn't resist buying some pieces from the renowned silver company, Thistle & Bee. Their signature is "clean, carefully crafted and uniquely sophisticated designs", timeless and classic - my signature as well. This beautiful and extremely wearable sterling silver link bracelet is part of their bamboo line and is just wonderful! The clasp is constructed with the detail of a much more expensive piece of jewelry; it is a fold-over link with a sturdy locking mechanism. I think you'll find that you will end up wearing this with everything.

Chic and fun at the same time and difficult to believe that it isn't signed. What a stunner this amazing retro bracelet is, fashioned of 14kt yellow gold and bright and lively orange-yellow citrines in the central elements as well as on the exterior.. It is constructed simply and beautifully and is a delight to wear. A very special piece of jewelry, indeed. Slightly oval rather than round ensures a wonderful fit. I've never seen anything else quite like it!

Bracelets with lock charms have been popular since the Victorian era and this is a modern take on that iconic image though this charm is in the shape of a padlock and actually opens without the need of a key! The bracelet and charm are both of 14kt yellow gold and both contain diamond melee; the bracelet on the ends and the padlock in the shape of the lock. Utterly charming yet sophisticated and extremely wearable. Gross weight: 17.0 dwt (26.5 grams) with charm. Charm weight: 3.4 dwt (5.2 grams) Condition is excellent. Circa mid to late 20th century
