Vintage transparent bakelite bangle bracelet with golden topaz color rhinestones and carving is clear like lucite but has a tinge of color around the edges reminiscent of very weak tea. We were fortunate to purchase several of these bracelets as old store stock about 25 years ago. The material of this beautiful vintage plastic bracelet reacts with Simichrome like bakelite but does not smell like bakelite when rubbed. Like black colors in bakelite, some colors do not release strong formaldehyde odors when rubbed. The aged color change is definitely something that happens to create apple juice bakelite over time. his gorgeous bracelet is a beauty with its crosshatch carving and embedded sparkling topaz colored rhinestones. It measures approximately 1" wide with an inner dimension of 2-1/2". In Excellent Condition, this vintage bakelite bangle is guaranteed to be authentic vintage bakelite. Looks fabulous with topaz colored celluloid spacer bracelets too. A magnificent and early vintage plastic bakelite bangle bracelet in a rare color for discriminating collectors.
