Napier Jewellery was sold in fine department stores along 5th Avenue and was a favourite with Hollywood stars, celebrities, and even First Ladies. Marilyn Monroe wore Napier when she posed for the cover of Movieland magazine in 1954 and in that same decade, Mamie Eisenhower, Arlene Francis, Miss America and the Duchess of Windsor all flaunted Napier jewellery. This highly-collectible Napier bracelet is in great condition and a wonderful example of the artistry and workmanship that characterize the Golden Age of Costume Jewellery
