Story

Talk about a new life! In grand and striking style, platinum charms have been matched with a wide gold bangle bracelet for ultimate impact and Madison Avenue luxury.

Around the early 19th century, platinum bracelets with delightful charms were all the rage. Exquisite, these charms were often set with diamonds or gemstones. If you are lucky enough to find one these days, they have usually been transformed into pendants or single charms. Their price tag for just one is usually at least $1000 and more.

In the 1940's when delicate was "out" and big and bold were "in," jewelers took to the challenge. Charms were removed from their delicate platinum bracelets and affixed to show stopper wide bangles and cuffs of gold.

In this 10k gold bracelet, no ordinary charms were destined for glory. Those that dot the surface are exceptional in motif and workmanship. Twenty-three of these appliques surprise the senses and add shimmer from every angle as they are set with diamonds. Motifs range from a skeleton key, to a pair of love birds, a marlin, and even a book with the words, "U R Loved by US" to name just a few.

For a dash of punctuated color, one irradiated lime-green yellow diamond and two synthetic sapphires were adapted from the top of a finger ring. In all, seven synthetic sapphires are present. All of these are correct for the time period.

The stars align...fifteen in number, each set into this weighty and wonderful wrist jewel. Edged with platinum the design is cohesive and blends with any of your existing jewelry. Entirely encrusted all the way around, the bangle's inspection reveals that it is handmade, as are many of the charms.

It's one of the most show-stopping ways of repurposing that you have ever seen.
