    I bought this bracelet at a second hand store. It has no markings, but the details seem old vintage or antique. It was tested as 10KG, but i can't place the time or who made it.

    Any help would be so appreciated and thank you in advance for your help.

    You probably won't be able to determine maker.

    Age would be 1880s give or take a decade.
    Most old gold wasn't marked.
    10K is fairly common.
    Garnets and half pearls.

    Forgot to say Welcome to the board

    When you open it up check the clasp for any marks.

    I agree, it's a beauty!

    Love the bracelet ezeepass, and welcome. Could we see a photo of the clasp, open?

    That tiny wire decoration is called cannetille, and the style of the decoration is often regarded as Etruscan Revival.
    The garnets and seed pearl could be real, although glass garnets were also used. Floral garnet motifs with pearl hearts are often seen on southern German jewellery of Munich and Schwäbisch Gmünd, but not exclusively there.

    It's a gorgeous bracelet! I am going to guess that the pearls and garnets look real to me. I love it!

    One way or the other, I think the OP scored. I'd be thinking Germany too or Bohemia; the (now) Czechs still like their garnets.

    Thanks, ezee. Looks good.
    You can test if the seed pearl is the real deal by rubbing it against your teeth. If it feels slightly gritty, it is real, which usually means the garnets are real as well.

    Cash, cash ezpass!! Welcome! Just had a look at Har Mar Superstar EZpass, so funny. Can’t believe he could get away with this stuff then, but I liked the record and he is such a character. Thanks for the reminder and I love the bangle.
