Early 19th century Berlin Iron bracelets with a floral motif and cameo clasps of Psyche and Cupid. Berlin Iron jewelry is highly prized for is intricate work and rarity. During the Napoleonic Wars wealthy Germans gave their precious jewels for the war effort and substituted them with iron jewelry. Some of the pieces were inscribed "Gold gab ich fur Eisen" meaning "I gave gold for iron". Today these pieces are as desirable as in the early 1800's. The bracelets measure 6 5/8" long and 2" at their widest.
