This vintage Canadian souvenir charm bracelet is likely from the 1950s, and features 12 different charms, 6 of which are sterling silver and enamel, 6 that are gold plated and feature paste stones added. The base chain is also marked as sterling silver, as are all the enamel charms. This was most likely a souvenir sold in Ontario, as the Ontario coat of arms is the only province featured. Other charms include two different maple leaves, two Ontario coat of arms, and two Canada coat of arms. The paste and gold tone charms include a bell, a lighthouse, a totem, a sailboat, a pair of binoculars, and something that is either another lighthouse or possibly a windmill (you decide!)
This would be a perfect gift to celebrate Canada 150 in 2017, or just a special memento of a beautiful trip or life well spent in an amazing country.
Size: approximately 7", non adjustable
Condition: Overall, this estate souvenir Canada charm bracelet is in good vintage condition. A few of the paste charms are missing some paste stones: two are absent on the binocular, three on one of the lighthouses. The bracelet is dark with tarnish, but I have left it as is, as I feel it adds to the character of this vintage bracelet. It will be polished before it is sent, however.
Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
