Antique c1930s Vintage Gold Filled GF Expansion BLUE Paste Stone Expansion Bangle Bracelet

This Vintage expansion bracelet is just Awesome in its design & styling. The square, eye-catching centerpiece is rare since most are round or heart shaped and features a large and bright BRILLIANT BLUE synthetic paste stone bordered with a fabulous repousse design of scrolling foliage at the edge.

The Pitman & Keeler Company began production of these expansion bracelets in the early 1900s and continued as one of the leading manufacturers of “sweetheart” or expansion bracelets through to the 1950s.  Their version of the expansion bracelet was known as the “American Queen” which was comparable in design and quality to the Carmen bracelet. These are highly collectable bracelets.

Repousse or embossed detailing decorates every second link alternating with plain & smooth. The links are attached, secure and the expansion tight. The links open in a scissor-like action.

It has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique jewellery with a warm yellow gold hue.
