Most probably the first “lobster clasp” bracelet I have ever offered (I rarely go beyond the 1980s with my jewelry), I simply could not resist the … charm of this Italian puffy hearts example. it is not just the soft, tactile roundness of the charms themselves that appeals to me, it is also the blue of the enamel, rendered richer and deeper by its purple undertones. There is nothing I don’t like about the bracelet - it is fun, it is beautiful, it is … charming! Measuring 8” long (wearable; can be clasped shorter though) with its charms adding a 7/8” drop to the chain and being 3/4” wide, the bracelet weighs 26.3 grams. It is marked “ITALY 925” and dates in the post-1980 period. It is in
excellent vintage condition with substantial presence, stunning color in the enamel, glowing patina and no damage or repairs noted.
