This big and bold retro bracelet is amazing. The style is completely indicative of the period in history during which it was made. The United States had entered into World War II and the roles of women in society changed. Fashion became very militaristic; short skirts, tailored jackets, and a more masculine aesthetic became popular for women. Jewelry design took on a more aggressive aesthetic and war themes were the desired trend. This rose and green gold bracelet is what is known as a tank track bracelet. It has a certain hardness to the overall look of it that was new and different from any jewelry preceeding it. This bracelet is a great piece of jewelry history.
