One of my favorite pieces from the E.P.L. Estate Collection is this lovely vintage 14k gold slide charm bracelet. This piece dates to 1950’s to 1960’s, and it is a revival of the original Victorian slide bracelets of the 1930’s.
Victorian women circa 1837-1901 would wear a pocket watch on a chain around their neck with a slide on it for decoration. In the 1930s collectors started putting these decorative slides on gold chain bracelets.
The charms are all different shapes and each features a different design and color of gemstone. The gemstones starting with the box clasp are: coral,
turquoise, blue topaz (with a ruby for the snakes eye, carnelian, amethyst,
Miniature Victorian portrait, garnet, moonstone, citrine, pearl.
(the turquoise may be glass)
This bracelet is in excellent vintage condition, the clasp has a strong snap when closing and there is also a safety chain for added protection.
