vintage set of 2 Jamaica / East Indies silver Cuff Bracelets

on Jul 25, 2020 in Bracelets, World

Vintage pair of sterling silver bangles bearing the hallmark of a Jamaican silversmith whom my admittedly not thorough research has not been able to identify, this set has textured repousse ends and etched floral and geometric decoration on the bodies proper. It seems that the form is well known in the index of Jamaican / East Indian jewelry – sometimes the bangles have fists at their ends – and it continues to be made today. Our duo is older though, I think, and such a pleasure to wear…

 

Size / Weight: 8″ inner circumference (including the 3/8″ gap) / 2 5/8″ inner diameter; 36.7 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature “AC” as well as “STERLING MADE IN JAMAICA” and “WI”; difficult for me to date yet the set has some age to it, I believe

Condition: excellent vintage with fantastic patina, nice details in the etched decoration and no damage or repairs noted

Offered at $215.00
