Then, Berna wrapped the bracelet in a silk handkerchief and tucked it away in her cedar chest where it remained until her step-daughter found it a few years ago. She had never heard her mother or her father mention Joe but she knew of an Uncle Joe who went to war and never returned. Could they have been one and the same?

Order "SW-673dfb " SOLD
151navy.jpg (33900 bytes) WW2 Navy sweetheart bracelet is in wonderful condition and looks hardly worn, perhaps, because the heartless woman to whom this bracelet was given had the name of her sweetie that was engraved on the back of the heart buffed out and removed.

700wristside.jpg (16409 bytes)

700wrist.jpg (27162 bytes)

Sometimes sold in sets, expansion bracelets like this one were favored by women who did not want the centerpiece. Nowadays, they make a great bracelet as shown or can be used by your jeweler to repair or replace a stretched out band on another bracelet. This one will fit a 4 to 7 inch wrist comfortably as shown! Hard to date as this style started being advertised in 1902. This gold filled band bracelet is signed by American Queen and has an additional mark we cannot make out. There is light wear commensurate with age but it is not noticeable without magnification. Order "SW-700wrist " SOLD.

Perfect for David and Cathy or Dakota and Caitlin. Lots of names with these initials! Interesting side note: the bracelet is maker marked on three links and one is the date 1944 but it was engraved with 1943's date on the back of the heart.  Perhaps, the soldier had to go overseas and had someone buy the bracelet for his sweetheart after he had reported for duty. Please note how pretty the heart is on this piece. Best for a 5.75 to 6.75 inch wrist. Order "SW-676ph4344 " SOLD.
160crescent.jpg (30154 bytes) A flower and a crescent heart bracelet that is in unworn condition probably dates to circa 1950 due to the gold top and stainless backed links. Easy to read the 12 gold fill mark but the maker's mark is hard to decipher, perhaps "C&B." Traditionally, the crescent was a symbol for the honeymoon so these bracelets were often given as engagement or wedding gifts. Another view of the satin and smooth top and alternating smooth and swirled links. This one will best fit a 5 to 6.5 inch wrist. Order "SW-#160crescent," SOLD.
161bam.jpg (40635 bytes) Engraved with a letter "B" in old English, this American Queen bracelet is gold filled on sterling and dates to the mid-forties, WW2 era.

102dollymadisonx.jpg (15580 bytes)

Sturdy, with a wide bracelet and substantial heart center, this Dolly Madison bracelet probably dates to the late 40's or early 1950's.

This beauty has that beautiful vintage deep gold filled color of days past and is accented with both rose gold and yellow gold. The center of the heart is engraved with an old English letter "B" but it is rather hard to see in the photos although, quite distinctive in person without the glare of our lighting. View the initial better and note the rose gold accents. Alternating smooth and Nouveau swirled designs on the links. View the back. Best for a 5 to 6.5 inch wrist but will flex a bit larger. Order "SW-102Dolly Madison, " SOLD.

Please note that most sweetheart bracelets range in age from the turn of the century through the 50's with increased popularity during war times. Wrists were smaller then and most of these bracelets, while they will expand quite large, look best on a small to medium wrist. Please email if you would like exact closed and fully extended measurements and we will be happy to advise. Many of these bracelets are from my private collection and they are all wonderful mementos of a more romantic time.
