The Details...

This silver tone bracelet features a 3D floral design, set with round, clear rhinestones of varying sizes, some of which are claw set. The bracelet fastens with a box clasp and features a safety chain too. The bracelet is signed with an oval shaped plate that reads 'Mitchel Maer' in script lettering.  It measures 14cm in length. 

A Short History...

This parure was created by the legendary costume jewellery designer, Mitchel Maer. According to the March 1955 issue of Australian newspaper 'The Age', Maer was based in Wales. So excellently crafted were his designs, that he was selected by Christian Dior to design jewellery for his fashion house between 1952 and 1956. This bracelet was created before he began designing for Dior, which is why it can be described as early 1950s. Perhaps it was this very piece which persuaded Mr Dior to request that Maer design his jewels? 

Wear it With...

The delicate diamante in this bracelet makes it ideal for bridal wear. Pay tribute to the decade in which it was made, by pairing it with a fifties, lace cocktail length dress with a full underskirt.
