Vintage Aurora Borealis Dragon Clamper Bracelet, Signed HAR, 1940's7"
tage Hargo Dragon Clamper Bracelet & Clip Earrings Set. 7". A stunning piece by Hargo, signed HAR. 1950's. It is signed HAR and is a vintage Dragon hinged-clamper bangle bracelet & earrings demi parure. The Dragon`s head is at the tip of the bracelet where it bypasses it's tail. It has beautiful textured crystal/glass nuggets that have the aurora borealis peacock shimmers like it is lava from deep within the earth in a range of shapes, sizes and colors of green & purple . These stones are unique to Hargo. There are two large stones in this raw design and then a round, pear and marquise shaped stone with a mix of clearer stones in round cuts that also have the aurora borealis shimmer that are scattered throughout the bracelet. . The white enamelled metal has fine detail and is in excellent condition with an antiqued wash that allows the highly textured metal to shine through. The earrings are clip on but your jeweler can convert these to pierced. This is a piece of art and quite the statement piece and will be noticed when worn. HAR, Hargo, only manufactured jewellery for a brief period, their production was limited and when found in good vintage condition, is highly collectible, valuable and rare. Stamped HAR with copyright C on the tail. One earring is also stamped. The copyright for this piece is in April of 1959. This set is featured in several reference books including Judith Miller`s book "Costume Jewellery", Marcia "Sparkles" Brown`s book "Signed Beauties of Costume Jewellery", Jacqueline Rehmann`s book "Classic American Costume Jewellery". Bracelet is appx. 7" and is nearly 1.75" wide at the largest nugget. The tail is tapered from appx. 1/2" down to 1/4" at the tip. The earrings also have a lava style nugget with other rhinestones as well and is appx. 1.5". I've had the green enameled set before this one years ago and never thought I'd run into a second set. Har was part of Hargo Creations from New York. (W101522.38X5 SS8739 J LD 10/28/22).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
