This is an exceptional set! The Silver is a beautiful handmade filigree/mwah. There are no hallmarks, only a Chinastamp on clasp.From my understanding, in research, China did not regulate silver, therefore hallmarks were not necessary and often not used. I have not tested these pieces but I do believe they are Silver. The 8 immortals in each panel is hand carved and painted in what appears to be bone. There are stones mounted around each immortal character that are purple, light blue, and dark blue.
The earrings are screw on. And of course the lovely original box is everything! Such a beautiful pattern and in really good condition for its age.
One corner of the top lid has become separated but could easily be glued in place. Some faint wear and discoloration.
I believe the lining is silk. The Set was not polished prior to photos being taken. The 8 Immortals are for good fortune and to ward off evil. Often these sets were given as wedding gifts, which I believe would be such a unique idea or for an anniversary gift.I could not determine an exact date on these. Personally, I would have a safety chain added to the bracelet. I would also have a bail added to the pin, allowing it to be used as a pendant.
Measurements: Overall bracelet is 7 1/4l x 1 3/4 w. Each panel on bracelet 7/8w. Earrings or a little over 1/2. Pin is 1 5/8 h x 1 1/4w. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions!
