    Hi guys....
    Can anyone help me date this bracelet?

    It is lovely!

    Smokey colored stones, box clasp, no hallmarks...

    Many thanks... IMG_20200327_111000.jpg IMG_20200327_110903.jpg IMG_20200327_110926.jpg IMG_20200327_110839.jpg

    Good question. I like it, but... no idea. It could be 50 years old and could be 15. Can we get a better shot of the clasp?

    Looks like light smokey quartz or citrine. I have seen those clasps before. I would have the metal checked for gold content.

    Hmmmm...hard to tell. I am seeing a gold hue. The setting of the stones is ornate, and the stones are beautiful. Is it goldtone or silvertone?

    Could be gold washed silver, too.

    The metal is siver. Thanks for your thoughts...

    It doesn't look horribly old from here - probably mid-90s or later. Beyond that..dunno. I was hoping the clasp would be a clue, but it's not. They've been using those push-ins for the last 80 years at least. It looks like it's at least partially hand made too, to make matters worse. Bench jewelers keep using older methods and styles if that's how they were taught, so you never can tell.
