While its name may sound delightfully moody and romantic, French jet is simply just a fancy term for old black glass.
Forged in the great glass making countries of Europe, such as Austria and Bohemia, French jet was viewed as a cheaper alternative to the highly sought after and expensive Whitby jet.
Though it may cost less than real jet, it doesn't mean this piece is a shrinking violet. This slinky coil wrap bracelet dazzles in any light with its faceted inky black glass. Strung on a piece of heavy spring steel, you can be sure that this bracelet will never lose its shape.
Date: 1880s Materials: French jet, steel Measurements: Best fits up to a 6" wrist Markings: None Condition: Very Good Under magnification, bracelet has faint surface scratches consistent with age and use.
