Charm bracelets are for me the harbingers of fun, carefree times and that perceptions is obviously shared by many out there because the form has been with us for such a long time and every so often its popularity is pushed again to the forefront of "style". Playful and easy to enjoy, they come in many combinations of materials, with their charms developing around a theme or, quite often, offering lessons in ... geometry, like here. Thick, beautifully aged sterling curb chain provides the base in this Mexican Deco example with the charms in the form of silver disks, each holding an amethyst cabochon set in a bezel. The stones are smooth and big, full of the inclusions that make Mexican amethyst visually interesting and popular with collectors. The bracelet measures 7 1/2" long (wearable) with the curb chain being 1/2" wide. The charms are 3/4" in diameter and add a 1" drop to the chain and the piece weighs 64.7 grams. It is signed with maker's initials as shown as well as "SILVER" and "MADE IN MEXICO" and dates in the pre-1948 period. In excellent vintage condition with great patina, good weight, nice color variation in the amethyst cabs, free of any damage or repairs, with an old-type slide in clasp and security clip.
