Inlaid Turquoise MOP Cuff Bracelet, Tulip, Abalone, Alpaca, Mexico, 7"
Vintage Alpaca Cuff Bracelet, Mexico, Inlaid tulip on a background of turquoise chips and made in mother-of-pearl and abalone. It has a 5" inside measurement and a 2" opening - it has some pliability however I would try to wear it as is as movement over time and excess bending can crack the metal. Alpaca is an allow that looks like silver but is not silver. This has a wide band on each side with a twisted thinner center band that ends with a scroll design against the inlaid floral top. This is more of a bracelet for a more slender wrist - I'd say 6.5" or lower. The width is 1-3/8" at the top center and it tapers down to 1/4" at the ends. It is marked Alpaca and Sterling on the back. 1960's-1970's and in very good condition for the age - just some light wear. See photos. This came from an Estate sale in PA where I was able to get a few Native/Southwestern/Mexican pieces. W.4.8-5.1617.5 - LD 11/15/17
I carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. I am currently stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. I transitioned from rubber stamping to vintage jewelry about six years ago and also carry other vintage items and am trying to change my presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the transition is complete. You can find me on pinterest where all my ebay items are categorized - mariasvinta0654

Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
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.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
