This very neat bangle bracelet looks just like Victorian coral, but it's made of Bakelite, an early type of plastic. I'm not sure how old it is, I believe it was made between the 1930s and 1950s.

It's in excellent condition, no chips to the "carved" flowers or leaves, and no cracks or structural damage. There is a darker rectangular space inside the bracelet which is where I believe a price tag or label was originally. You can also see a grey-ish molding (seam) line on the inside of the bracelet, but you don't see either of these things at all from the outside. There is also a grey-ish bubble or speck in the plastic that was part of its manufacturing, you can see it in the photos.

The bracelet's opening measures 2.5 inches in diameter. It's .5 inch wide, and its inner circumference is 7.75 inches around. A bit on the smaller side, as bangles go.

Common Sense Advice: this early plastic item needs to be worn and treated with reasonable care. It could break with rough treatment or too much stress.

Frequently asked questions about AuldBaubles

SAFETY:
Vintage/Antique baby/children's jewelry almost certainly does not meet metals safety standards for youngsters of today. Therefore I can only sell it for adult use.

I cannot guarantee sterility of earring posts/hooks/wires (and/or other pieces where this may be an issue). Please purchase and use at your own risk.

LOCAL JEWELERS:
May try to sell you work your ring doesn't need! Be on your guard, refer to Item Details for info re: prongs and bands.

COLORS ARE APPROXIMATE:
Colors may display inaccurately on screens.
RING SIZES are approximate, due to jewelers' ring sizing mandrels not being completely standardized.

STONE SIZES are necessarily estimates, because in most cases, I cannot measure the depth of a stone due to its being in a setting. I measure the diameter (or length and width) of a stone with digital calipers, and estimate its size (carat weight) from its span.

BANGLE SIZE: Please note the inner diameter for the bangle. I suggest you cut out a mock-up on sturdy cardboard to see how it will fit you before ordering.
The outer packaging is discreet, nobody will know there is jewelry inside.

I do not use my shop name on the return address; this is for the item's safety in transit and for privacy on arrival, as jewelry items are often bought as gifts.

Pieces are sent in small carton boxes tied with rustic string, or cushioned inside handmade wrapping paper gift bags.
