    Hi All,
    I have 4 animal head bracelets, and some questions.

    The dragon head bracelet is sterling. I wonder about age and origin. The scales that stick up are pretty sharp, which I think is neat.

    The pair of dolphin head bracelets, I'm not sure of metal content. Testing suggests silver plate or a lower than sterling grade of silver. First do you agree those are dolphin heads, and any thought about age and origin.

    The ram head bracelet is just silver in color, no precious metal. A few similar on-line say based on Ancient Greek bracelets. Any thoughts welcome.

    Thanks in advance. I've been away for awhile and glad to be back.

    Nice collection, and good to have you back.:)
    It is gorgeous, and Chinese.

    The dolphin heads are actually Makara heads. Makaras are protective mythical animals in Hinduism and Buddhism. Those two are probably made in India.
    I agree, a low grade silver, but it is always good to have a pair.:) That is how they are often worn traditionally.
    Replicas of Ancient Greek bracelets, and popular now.
