These are the two items which I found in England, during our first week. The necklace is from the 1950’s or before, and the bracelet 1960’s. Use a detail examination of the metalwork – it’s gorgeous. Yes, they show some wear, but that’s often a plus and no problem on a bargain like this.
It’s possible that the stone in the necklace is a real topaz – I’ll need to have that checked. The bracelet is unquestionably totally faux, but very pretty and has a safety chain. That’s a feature I LOVE on bracelets and is almost impossible to find on any modern piece. Such a sensible and elegant-looking addition . . . . .
Although these pieces are not a set, I will wear them together and was so happy to find a pair that coordinate so nicely. The elegant jewelry finds continue tomorrow, in a new country . . . . . . .
