    Condition Notes: The lion bracelet tests 10k and the Mourning bracelet tests 14k. Both bracelets are flexible and composted of interlocking links. The lion head bracelet shows dents and scratches to some links, showing yellow metal discs on reverse for reinforcement in stone setting. Significant abrasion to the red stones in the eyes of the lion. Completed by a box clasp and safety chain. Indistinct maker's mark on the clasp. The pearl and enamel bracelet shows excellent condition, no chips or cracks in the enamel, reverse shows mother-of-pearl backing, the front opens to reveal a swirl of blonde hair under mineral glass. Minor tarnish on reverse. The clasp is quite unique, adjustable at various lengths, however the first and largest adjustable link is worn and does not hold, the other 4 lengths hold just fine.
