Super chic, dual-tone, criss-cross, modernist bracelet
A fabulous piece of vintage modernist mid-century design. The clean minimalist lines of the bracelet get their dynamism from the crisscrossing in front- accented by elegant wire-wrapped detailing in brass. The softened edges, at the back, add a sultry quality that is incredibly alluring. A piece of jewelry that is easy to wear and easier to love.
Composition: Sterling silver.
Measurements: Laying flat, the bracelet is 6.3 cm at the widest. The height (of the side of the bracelet) is ~ 1.2 cm. Adjustable, though best fit for a small to medium-sized wrist. (Ideally, one shouldn't constantly widen and tighten such open bracelets- this weakens the metal. Once you have set the bracelet to your ideal width, try getting in and out of the bracelet by flexing your wrist.)
Age: 1960s- 1970s
Country of origin: Mexico.
Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
