Footnotes

  • Charm bracelets are one of the only jewelry pieces which are both intimately personal and so highly desirable and collectable. It is a glimpse into the wearers life: her style, expression of who she is and where she has been. This is her story! This bracelet is purported to have a history of Hollywood glamor. You are first drawn in by the delicate diamond encrusted charms and then you realize they tell a story of this woman's life from 1922 through 1940. It is said that each charm was gifted to an actress by her producer after each movie filming wrapped. While there are many charm bracelets that remain from the 1950s and 60s, it is rare to come across an example from the 1920s.

Saleroom notices
