A Short History...

This bangle is made from the thermoset plastic Bakelite used popularly in jewellery manufacture from the 1910s through to the 1940s. It has been proven to be Bakelite through testing. It is evocative of the wartime era, when manufacture of luxury items, such as jewellery, could only really be achieved through the use of cheap, man-made materials.
