Vintage Chanel Bracelet

Once I had my hands on this Vintage Chanel Bracelet I felt the need to blog about it. The customer who brought it in to Acme Plating to have it Gold plated must have owned it for many years. I wish now that I had asked at the time how long ago she purchased it. I know that it was long enough to have the Gold plate completely worn off. I recommended when she first brought it in to have it finished in Satin Gold. This would help keep the vintage look once plated in 24 Karat Gold. I am glad I managed to snap a quick picture on my phone once it was finished, I have never seen anything like it before. This is a perfect example of a timeless piece loosing its lust. Go through your Mom's or Grandma's jewellery box and see if there is anything that you could spiff up. Taking an old locket, watch, earrings, ring or bracelet and re finishing it can make the piece new and exciting all over again.
