A marvelous hallmarked marcasite bracelet. It is a hinged bangle, making it so much easier to slip right into. The metal is sterling silver, hallmarked for Birmingham (UK) and 1953-4. The marcasite is all original, with wonderful glitter sputtering about in the sunlight or the firelight. The bangle has its original safety chain. This is one you'd never want to lose! In beautiful, immediately-wearable condition! Measurements taken from the inside edge: side to side is 2 1/4", front to back is 2". You will look marvelous in marcasite!
