 NEW "BAKELITE" JEWELRY

 

 

  NEW "BAKELITE" CARVED BANGLES
Shown below are contemporary bangles made and hand carved in the Asia from a formula that is similar to bakelite, but NOT bakelite. These chunky bangles are fun to mix with older bakelite, but it is good to know the difference so you don't pay vintage prices for newer bangles. So be aware though that these are NEW and should not command the same prices as vintage pieces, nor should they be represented as old. I first saw them circa 2003. They are well carved and a bit heavier and larger in scale than most vintage bakelite, and they often measure 2-5/8" instead of the usual 2-1/2" across the inside. Many more styles were made, and many fake bakelite bangles and brooches are still being made. Some are difficult to tell from the real thing, so buy from someone who knows what they are selling.

While this is a fun piece to wear, it should not be priced as old bakelite. Note the shavings still present where the drilling was done.

Also, the molding line along the side of the finger can be easily seen.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
