Memorabilia Monday: Silver Bracelet

full bracelet

There are many items in our memorabilia collection that have no stories. This sterling silver bracelet (Yes, it would look nice if it was polished.) is one of those mystery pieces. Someone made it before 1960, since it bears the Rice Institute seal.

For any of you with jewelry expertise, when do you think it was made? Also, do you think the seal is original to the piece or added later?
