This is a beautiful bracelet - probably 1950's. It consists of a gilt snake chain with a central piece threaded on. This is in white rhodium plated metal and gold plate. It has deep blue stones and white paste stones. I do think this is Marcel Boucher. It has one of his stock numbers on - but the other mark is indecipherable. I cannot therefore sell it as Boucher although it certainly looks like it. (If anyone seems it in a book somewhere please let me know! Full description on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - price £135 reference 2567 B123/3 - or all in to Grays Antiques in central London - 020 7499 8121.

This is a Patricia Locke pendant necklace and clip earrings set. It is in a muted, matt gilt metal. Patricia Locke started making in 1971 but I do not know the date of this is (which is not current). It has a very 1980's feel to it. Even the chain would be good worn on its own! Price £128 reference 2562 B125/12. Full description on my web site - see here"
