HI,

I have an older Tiffany and co. bracelet made of coin-looking medallions chained together. All medallions are of Greek or Roman heads in headdresses/helmets. the clasp is a pretty large decorated egg shaped pin clasp- half oval to each side of the bracelet. It is marked with an s within wings as well as Tiffany and co.- and a short serial.

I don't have easy web hosting for pictures, but if you needed or wanted to see them to help me I would happily Email the pics to you.

I had been wearing the bracelet on and off for a couple of years, it is in need of a couple of repairs and unwearable at the moment. I have had a hard time finding someone to repair it and dealing with Tiffany is ridiculously expensive in all respects (research , repairs...)

I would like any of your advice- It seems that here would be the place to ask!!!

Thank you all.
Peter

From your description, I would say you have a bracelet made by George W. Shiebler of New York and retailed by Tiffany & Co. Shiebler introduced medallions on various jewelry forms around 1880 and then went on to use the same designs on flatware (his "Homeric" pattern). One of Shiebler's marks was a "winged S." For further info and for pictures of typical medallions and the mark, see the book Silver Medallion Flatware by D. Albert Soeffing (New York: New Books, 1988), pp. 72-75. I would think any major jewelry store with repair facilities could probably repair your bracelet.

You may also want to see if there are any professional silversmiths in your area. They, too, should be able to fix your Shiebler bracelet. Be sure to have it fixed by somebody competent, even if it is more expensive. Shiebler jewelry is nice, and worth keeping in good shape.
