Throughout the 50’s and 60’s the look of the charm bracelet changed, and yellow gold charm bracelets became a widespread fashion must-have among women. The charm bracelet was a wonderful reminder to its owner of special occasions, life experiences and exotic travels. The charm of the charm bracelet disappeared from fashion during the 90’s but recently made a comeback with designers like Chanel and Louis Vuitton creating and advertising gold link bracelets adorned with a variety of fun and fabulous charms.
Authentic Art Deco charm bracelets are few and far between these days, so collectors will scour the marketplace for ones in good condition, like this one. With the genuine article, the platinum work is always quite delicate, and there is very little metal holding the gemstones in place. This type of workmanship is extremely rare these days, as most contemporary jewelry is mass-produced.
