Vintage Cameo Medieval bookchain bracelet
Fantasy with knights and Medieval figures adorn this beautiful old bookchain bracelet. The stones are some sort of bloodstone ( the black looking cameo with a red streak in it) carnelian ( the cameo in the shield) and peking glass ( the other green shield. Also there is a red czech glass stone set into the griffin or lion and a turquoise cab with gold flakes in it. Set on a fancy etched repousse bookchain, these large circular and shield links each have a different scenario all related to a period when figures and certain types of stones warded off evil and protected the wearer. This is a really well made bracelet that has aged gracefully and is rich in patina. It measures 7" long and 1 1/4" wide. A truly wonderful antique bracelet.
