This piece was made as a direct replica of a piece owned by Wallace Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. It is signed FM87 under one of the panthers heads for 1987 Franklin mint.
Featured are two leopard heads coated heavily with a 22k gold overlay. The panther heads have black enamel spots and genuine ruby stone inset eyes. The rubies have been tested using a Presidium Gem Tester and all 4 tested positive as being rubies. The bangle has an ebony wood band.
The inside opening measures 2.75 inches side to side by just a little over 2 inches from bottom of Panthers heads to top of clasp area. The clasp has an additional safety clasp.
The bracelet was originally offered by The Franklin Mint in 1987 at a cost of $495. It is rare to find one in this excellent condition these days.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Package delivery charges of $9.95. The package will be insured and will require a signature at the time of delivery. Delivery is from Arizona.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items will safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
