From my personal collection - In MINT, Unworn condition - is this Genuine and Complete Speidel Bracelet & Earrings set. Included is the EXTRAORDINARY presentation stand with its ornate plastic base and domed lid with fancy matching knob AND the original external box with is just as Beautiful. I have provided some pictures of the maker's advertisement (for information purposes) for this very range of jewellery - Old World Jewels by Speidel. Remarkable!
This particular set with its simulated Cameos and Pearls was referred to as "Spirit of France". It is comprised of an expansion or adjustable bracelet featuring a locket beneath the cameo; the links expand with a scissor-like action to allow the bracelet to slip over the hand & close back to fit the wrist snugly. The gold hued links are zigzagged in formation with a rich yellow gold hue and they are all attached & secure with the “elasticity” as new.
The earrings are clip-ons with spring backings.
It has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique jewellery and the contrast of the rose and yellow/green gold is Gorgeous!
