Price: S$25.00 (US$20.83)
Bracelet: 5.75" length, 11mm width
Earrings: 23mm
Fine condition, bracelet has replaced new faux pearls, they are a pinkish hue. The plating has shown wear on the pale gold-plating revealing a greyish base, on the backs, edges and sides, it has been worn quite a bit whose previous owner probably loved it to death but the set still has some life left in it, as you can see it is a very pretty design with no problems to the flowers and leaves! The tops have coral-coloured celluloid flowers, likely Japan in origin, with painted green leaves. This bracelet is short and will fit slimmer wrists. The earring clips have quite some wear on the backs and chipping on the plating due to verdigris (already cleaned off) but the fronts are very nice. The faux pearls here are original and are off-white with a satin lustre. 1950s.

The screw-back clips have wear on the silvertone revealing the brass, and the brass in turn has a nice deep patina.
