Ann Vien Jewelry RARE Vintage Bracelet w Pin Pearl Flower Pom Poms
This designer signed Anne Vien pearl Pom-Pom clamper bracelet and brooch is a rare designer set. Anne Vien signed jewelry is very rare to find. She was a jewelry designer in the 1950s based out of Atlanta GA. All the jewelry she made, and there is not alot in any case, is very unique and exceptionally well crafted.
This pearl clamper bracelet and brooch is made of thickly plated silver rhodium metal and if you look at the back of the brooch or the bracelet and you can see the extremely ornate style of the crimped filigree flower settings.
The silver metal flower settings are adorned with large white pearlescent acrylic domes, completely covered with tiny pom-pom pearl flowers. Each flower cluster has a clear rhinestone at the center which sets the whole design off and makes it sparkle. There are clear rhinestones around the perimeter of the silver flower settings as well.
The bracelet is a clamper style and the original safety chain with spring clasp is in place. My wrist is exactly 7" or 17.8 cm in diameter and although the bracelet fits, it would fit better on wrists that were 6 1/2" or 16.5 cm or smaller in diameter. The pearl cabs on the bracelet and brooch are all about 1 1/2" or 3.8 cm wide. The brooch is 2 5/8" long x 1 1/2" wide or 6.8 cm x 3.8 cm.
The bracelet has the original Ann Vien signed metal hang tag but the brooch is not signed that I can find. I sincerely doubt this set as ever been worn as both pieces are in pristine like new condition. The silver rhodium metal has no wear anywhere and all of the pearls and rhinestones are present, lustrous and sparkling, and perfect. Both pieces are microscopically clean and bright.
Note: At the bottom of one of the cabs on the bracelet, there is a small gap between two of the pearl flower settings. I believe it is just how the bracelet was made as it does not appear that another flower cluster would fit into the space, but it could also be a spot where a flower cluster is missing. It is hardly worth noting as it is on the side edge and not noticeable. I have noted it in the photos above.
