    well thanks.... It sounds like you know what to get her for the holidays.

    I've already gotten her like 5 of these things, dam they are expensive, but worth it I think, they're so pretty!

    yes, worth it........ and she will love them forever. I find a lot of mine at fleamarkets now. Sometimes you can get a great deal if you know what you are looking for.

    This is absolutely gorgeous!
    I lovely problem to have!

    The great designers ( Dries van Noten, etc..) are right now, making and selling necklaces made from these vintage bracelets, those necklaces cost a fortune, but I would never sell those, I would keep them nice and snug in their box and enjoy them everyday of my life!

    Oh my!! How wonderful!

    May I ask you, I'm quite new to this with old plastic, is the difference between bakelite and lucite big? Have you any tips on how to know if the bangle is the real deal or just a modern copy when you buy online??
