This lovely vintage expansion bracelet, called a sweetheart bracelet was often given by soldiers to their sweethearts during WWII. It is a combination of sterling silver with a gold-overlay (stamped Co-Star), a line of by W & H Jewelry Company, circa 1945. The bracelet features a hand-engraved heart centerpiece that measures 20.5 mm and is connected to a fancy “S” shaped expansion link band. The band is made of alternating sterling and gold overlay links and measures 11.4 mm wide. Bracelet fits a small wrist–those that typically wear a 6 6 1/2-inch size bracelet. Condition is very good: the top link has been repaired with a sterling rivet (see photos).

Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is.  I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist.  I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc.  I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty.  If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina.  Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can.   Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
