Pinchbeck, the miracle metal: true life alchemy from the Georgian Era! Pinchbeck is an incomparable alloy made to look and wear just like gold and was used to make 'carriage jewelry', jewelry one would travel with in order to keep their original gold pieces safe. Today fine pinchbeck antique jewelry is valued nearly as much as natural precious metals! At over 200 years old, the metal still shines bright and is in excellent condition. It is very lightweight, yet solid and strong. This bracelet is made up of six equal panels with a tab insert clasp and added safety lock, as shown. It measures 1 1/2 inches wide and 7 inches long, fitting an average wrist.
