NOS Saks Warehouse Ivory Hinged Bangle with Smoky Qtz

A little history about the jewelry The current owner of the warehouse donated all of the jewelry to a Rabbi who ran various charities in Brooklyn, NY. The Rabbi sold the jewelry in his thrift shop. He had boxes of ivory jewelry that had been pulled from the SAKS store in the 1970s when SAKS decided to no longer sell ivory items. Some of the items had the original SAKS sales tags but many of the tags had fallen off. When I purchased the items that I will be adding to my shop, a number of the tags were loose in the box and I had no way of matching the tags to items. I talked with a SAKS representative and verified that the stock numbers on the tags were from the 1970s.

This is one of the few bracelets that I have left from the Saks Fifth Avenue warehouse. It is a hinged bangle with brass findings and a large dark smoky quartz gemstone. The ivory is chunky and the inside circumference of the bangle is 7 1/2 inches. The inside measures 2 3/4 inches x 2 inches. The bangle is 1 inch wide and 5/16 inch thick. It weighs 128 grams. This piece still has the adhesive price tag attached to the inside of the bangle. The hang tag was missing.

Note: Ivory cannot be shipped internationally nor bought or sold by CA residents. I am including a photo of SAKS sales tags that were with the jewelry items as documentation that the ivory is pre-ban.

Shipping is $6.25 and USPS insurance is $5.50.
