Amazing huge vintage bracelet in dark silvertone metal with faux pearls and glass stones in shades of pale blue, some with a pinkish aurora borealis finish, and palest lemon. Definitely French, circa 1960, and possibly for Dior by Countess Cissy Zoltowska (Cis) or by Francis Winter. I am listing a very similar necklace and earrings which are marked France. With distinctive French construction elements such as "piecrust" settings and dogtooth prongs. The slide clasp, metal finish, and openwork elements are also very characteristically French. Outstanding size -- 3 inches wide and 7 1/4 inches wearable length. Excellent condition. Some aurora borealis stones have slight wear to the finish but this is not noticeable at a short distance. Photos enlarged to show detail. Display form is life size.
