Antique Silver Days of the Week Cameo Bracelet. Circa 1950. This dainty, shell cameo bracelet has seven different hand-carved images in shades of grey and translucent white. Each cameo is a miniature portrait of the Roman god or goddess that represents a particular day of the week. They all ride chariots drawn by the creature or beings that are associated with the specific deity: Luna (Monday), Mars (Tuesday), Mercury (Wednesday), Jove/Jupiter (Thursday), Venus (Friday), Saturn (Saturday) and Sol (Sunday). The cameos are bezel set in 800 (80%) silver, which is not quite sterling quality (92.5% silver) but is a commonly accepted silver alloy in Europe and South America. The bezel of each panel is also bound with twisted gold wire. The piece is stamped 800 and, although not hallmarked, was likely made in Italy for the tourist trade.
The bracelet has a circumference of 6½ inches (17 cm) when it is fastened and each panel measures ¾ inch (2 cm) by 5/8 inch (1.5 cm).
For added security, the piece has a safety chain. One of the gold wire bands is missing, the one around Jove/Jupiter — the fourth panel from either end — but you have to look very closely to note the absence. Otherwise the bracelet is in good, used condition.
