This antique silver bracelet bears a simple, elegant tear shaped design at the sides. It is made from high grade silver often obtained from melted down French silver coins. The silver has an attractive aged patina but could be polished to a high shine. The yellowish marks on the inside of the bracelet can be removed with cleaning. It was acquired on a recent trip to Laos where authentic antique hill tribe silver jewellery is now very scarce.
