Jewel of the day: N.E. From sterling bracelet

Pieces by Niels Eric From are kind of the poor man’s Danish sterling, or used to be. Prices have slowly been rising. This is a sterling silver bracelet with bezel set cabochon green chalcedony, designed so that the silver is slightly oxidized around the settings. From used this kind of setting quite a bit. Reminds me a bit of the more organic designs of Evald Nielsen, a fellow Dane.  I’ve also seen this design set with cabochon amber. The first time was in an antiques shop in California. Regrefully, the store owner had decided to “polish” the amber with something that clouded and essentially ruined it. I have a pin in the same design also available on my web site, in amber. Couldn’t resist when I finally found one that hadn’t been “polished”!
