Scary Bracelet

MOOOOOHAHAHAHAAAAH

(Not scared yet? Click the picture for more excitement!)
 

Tank bracelet - The bracelet pictured is a so-called tank bracelet. This, because its design is based on the caterpillars of a tank; a typical motif for bracelets in the Retro period.

The strong geometrical shapes of the Retro style (ca.1940-1950) shows how strongly influenced it is by its predecessor: the Art Deco style. Using the same type and language of geometrical shapes but with bolder heavier lines and shapes. Typical for the Retro style are the often used carré cut ruby or sapphire stones.

The bracelet we present here is a typical child of its time.... and that's what antique and estate jewelry should be all about: That a piece fully represents the time it was made in.

Hmmmmm, when you think about it... actually not scary at all.
