NOS 1990s Yin-Yang novelty cuff bracelet chain ring
New Old Stock Cuff/ring combination
Novelty new old stock ring and cuff combination. This is a silver-tone plated item and and we believe it is plated over brass but we are not positive.
Although new old stock, this may have imperfections including: tarnishing, oxidizing, spots of corrosion to plating causing white areas, scratches from storage, the white areas of the yin-yangs have started to yellow, staining on the white area, some plating starting to come off.
This is a novelty item, and may have multiple production imperfections including: the yin-yang not perfectly formed, the filler of the yin-yang does not perfectly go to edges, minor imperfections to plating, the yin-yang is not properly centered on the bracelet so it may sit off to a side or be angled, bracelets may be slightly out of shape, the bands of the rings are not perfect, some ring bands have drips of plating.
As these are novelty items, rather than have molds for each size of rings, it seems they added metal or hammered the bands thinner to increase sizes. Bands may be thick in some spots and thinner at other spots.
The rings are marked with a size but you will receive one based on how it is actually sized and not based on the number marked on the inside of the ring. These are novelty items and we have found they were often times not properly marked or actually 1/2 size too small or too large. For example, a ring marked a 5 could size anywhere from a 4.5 to 5.5.
The chains were cut by hand and lengths slightly vary between item.
