1960s - 70s Modernist Sterling Silver Aventurine Sodalite Signed Bracelet
Made by hand or in small groups of similar styles, vintage jewelry is individualistic with its own unique history.

How it Feels On
There is nothing like holding vintage and antique jewelry in your hand, so we do our best to recreate the experience.
This piece has a sleek yet still bold silhouette with a rigid shape, so it stands out from your wristline dynamically. Dense and weighty this piece fits firmly around your wrist, so the stone accents sit upright when worn.
On Unique Shapes. Gemstones are time consuming to cut, requiring a high degree of skill from a trained craftsman, and glass cabochons can be equally complicated to manufacture on a large scale while keeping costs down. These constraints are only a few of the reasons you often see similar shapes of stones used in jewelry. When an unusual shape or cut is used, the manufacturer has made a decision to make something different. Look for out-of-the-ordinary shapes, like the demilune for example, for a striking look as well as a unique find.
On Signed Designer Pieces. A piece of jewelry that has been signed by the designer is immediately of higher value, because it definitively places the work in their oeuvre. This gives the piece a personal history that it might not otherwise have-fixed in place, time, style, and intent. In addition, signed designer pieces indicate that a designer viewed the work as worthy enough to want his or her name to be forever associated with it. This indicates that the piece was made with a concentration on high-quality construction or perhaps trendy or progressive design.
