Vintage Pearl Chain Bracelet

Ashes and Pearl Bracelet

This delicate bracelet features a vintage pearl button made from mussel shells harvested from the Mississippi River by the American Pearl Button Company of Washington in Iowa. A few decades after the button company closed its doors in 1964, the great-grandson of the original owner, decided to sell the remaining stock and we bought it all. 

Grandmother's Buttons design team hand-dyed the pearl buttons in small batches on a stovetop in our St. Francisville, Louisiana studio.

In this piece:

  • One Lady Washington vintage mother-of-pearl button
  • Small brass flower stamping, American-made today in antique dies
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 7 1/4" to 7 3/4"
