Today I'm wearing a bracelet that I inherited from my mother-in law. She got it from her mother-in-law in the 70s. I think the bracelet is probably from the 50s but I'm not sure. It's 14k gold with about 25 diamonds going all the way around and a cabochon sapphire in the clasp, handmade and weighs an absolute ton. I love it with navy blue. There is a hallmark inside that I would love to figure out. Anyone know a good resource for that?

What a cool bracelet! I also love it with the navy blue. I bet it looks fantastic with a blazer and that you can see it’s strong forms from afar.

@prs I would love your opinion on your DW's rubies. In these photos, they look purple. In real life, can the purple be seen?

I sometimes think the camera picks up more purple or pink in rubies.

Thank you for your thoughts.

And those are lovely lovely!

The camera probably picked up more purple/pink because of DW's top :lol-2:

Still a gorgeous color imo even if pinkish or purplish

Hi ChaiK, hope you are well and staying safe! Yes, for this particular pendant the camera does pick up more purple than is visible to the naked eye. This tends to happen more in bright daylight, and not so much in the shade or in the evening when the lights are on. There is a very slight purple modifier in the stones, so under the right conditions the camera picks it up and magnifies it.

DW wore it again last night and this photo, taken indoors around sunset, better shows the true color.

@prs Your wife certainly has an impressive collection and I love to see her pieces! :kiss2: Would you be willing to share her whole collection in one thread rather than piecemeal?

Answering your question about the hallmark - if it's a full British hallmark, then this is an incredible resource:


It's a hallmark 'wizard' where you add the information bit by bit and it spits out the age and details at the end. Sooooooooo much easier than trying to work your way through hundreds of tables! Unfortunately I have no idea whether there is anything similar for the other countries with intricate hallmarking systems (Russia, France, etc). Hope this might help!

@YC I am not a fan of blue normally but that colour on your sapphire is gorgeous! It actually has a glow to it like the Paraiba! Beautiful!!!!!!
