Switzerland Sterling Watch

rosette Sterling Silver Swiss Watch with Blue Enamel Guilloche Case, Sapphire Jeweled Stem and Seed Pearls Border - Very Unusual Chain! New Listing!

I absolutely adore this beautiful enamel guilloche watch not only for its rich blue coloring but for its unique design.  The watch is suspended from a swivel arm which allows the watch to be flipped back and forth.  It has a spring clasp ring at the top which could attach it to a chatelaine.  The bottom has a long double chain with two silver tassels suspended from the bottom and a blue enamel slide.  I have never run across another watch even remotely like it! There is a blue sapphire jewel on the stem and the back side of the case has gold stars sprinkled around the enamel guilloche background.  Although there is no maker on the watch face, the inside of the case is marked Argent and 800 for sterling plus a hallmark for Switzerland (grouse) dating it from 1882 - 1934.  It is not in working condition but it is a beautiful piece of jewelry in and of itself. There is one tiny seed pearl missing on each side which should be easy enough to replace. I will see if I can locate one in my jewelry caches.  The watch itself measures a bit over 1" diameter.  The length of the chains from top to bottom when stretched out are 10-1/2".

Henex 17 Jewel Pendant Watch

rosette Marquis Shaped Sterling Silver Blue Enamel Guilloche 17 Jewel Pendant Watch with Jeweled Stem by Henex & Monarch Watch Co. (Swiss Works)

This lovely watch has been a part of my collection since 2004. I have always loved the inlaid look with the two-tone blue enamel guilloche on the front, sides and back and the sapphire jeweled stem.  The case is sterling silver (hallmarked inside for Switzerland dating between 1882 - 1934) and the works are by Monarch Watch Co. with 17 jewels.  The face of the watch is marked "Henex" and I am not sure what this signifies ... perhaps the model??  It has a matching enamel guilloche bail and I am including a new sterling silver chain to go with it so it is ready to wear.  There are two apologies on this piece but they are so tiny that they really never bothered me at all.  One is on the blue portion on the front between the 9 and 10 (visible in pic) and the other is on the side in the same spot (visible in photos). Watch measures 7/8" wide x 2-1/8" long (not counting bail or stem). The watch is currently running and keeping excellent time.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Huguenin Ball Watch

rosette Huguenin Blue Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch with Gold Sunburst Design, Swiss Works

This lovely watch has been a part of my collection since 2005.  It was made by Huguenin, a company which has been in business continually since 1868.  This watch is a beautiful example of their fine craftsmanship with a lovely rich blue enamel guilloche case embellished with bright gold sunbursts and dots all the way around.  I have been unable to open the case to find out how many jewels it has or to verify the sterling content but I was told it was sterling when I purchased it and based on the quality of this company's pieces, I wouldn't think otherwise.  There is a lovely gold embossed chain which was included with it when I purchased it.  Watch measures 3/4" diameter not counting stem and chain is approximately 28" around (14" drop). Although I was not able to get a video of the watch running, it is working and keeping excellent time.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Kelbert Pendant Watch

rosette Gorgeous Kelbert Pendant Watch with Hand-Painted Flowers on Royal Blue Enameled Case and Pearl Jeweled Chain

This lovely watch has been a part of my collection since 2002.  I just love the delicate hand-painted flowers that represent the hours on the face of the watch.  The case is a beautiful gold metal with royal blue enamel with gold applied accents on the back.  There is also a hand-painted rose in the center of the back of the case as well.  It is really a stunning piece!   The watch comes in a jeweler's case which reads "R. Harris & Co. Jewelers" from Washington D.C.  Watch measures almost 1" diameter (not counting bail or stem). The chain measures 27" long total and has 26 pearls.  I am guessing it to be from the 1940's based on company history and ads I have seen for their timepieces.  The watch is currently running and keeping excellent time.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Evans Enamel Guilloche Locket

rosette Evans Double Enamel Guilloche Locket with Hand-Painted Roses

Evans makes some of the prettiest enamel guilloche lockets and this is another striking example done in double enamel guilloche (front and back) with hand-painted roses on the front.  This one appears to have never been used as the original cello covers and papers are still found inside.  I assume that the bail is original but the chain (which is gold tone) is more than likely not.  But it is easy enough to change the chain to whatever size you want.  The enameling on the front is perfect with no scuffs or scratches visible at all.  The back is near perfect with a small flake in the enamel at the very bottom edge ... nearly invisible when hanging since it is on the curved portion (see photos).  All in all, a great piece ready to use with your photos inside.  Measures 1-1/8" wide x 1-5/8" long not counting bail.

London Enamel Guilloche Watch

rosette Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Wrist Watch with Swiss Movement Hallmarked London 1916

This stunning wrist watch is a beautiful example of enamel guilloche done in  rare flowers in the guilloche portion rather than painted on the surface.  And it is hallmarked 925 Sterling from London with the date year being 1916 ... nearly 100 years old!  The movement is Swiss but there is no maker's mark on the works.  It is a pin-set movement and the watch runs well at this time.  Other than the case being made in London in 1916, I do not know who made the case either as I cannot identify the other marks.  There is some discoloration along the edges in a few places as will be shown in the close-ups but they are not very noticeable unless looking closely.  The leather band is marked Kreisler.  The watch face measures 1-1/8" diameter.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Bucherer is one of my favorite watch makers ... it seems like I always fall in love with their gorgeous designs. This one is a beautiful turquoise blue in an elongated oval shape with a matching enamel guilloche chain. The enamel guilloche on the watch is pristine and the chain links are all perfect.  The design on the back of the case is a radiant sunburst which is so pretty and the turquoise color is deeper than the lighter aqua shades Bucherer is so fond of.  The removable chain is extra long measuring 35" and there are 16 enameled links. The watch measures 1-1/8" long (not counting ring at top) x 5/8" wide.  The watch itself has a 17 jewel Swiss movement with 3 adjustments. This one is marked 925 sterling inside the case. Circa 1920's - 30's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Matisse Bracelet

rosette Matisse  Copper & Enamel Bracelet in Abstract Design

This is a lovely enamel on copper bracelet attributed to Matisse ... according to the books, unmarked pieces of Matisse were made before 1954.  We are assuming this to be one such piece as we have found others identical to it that are marked which would be later.  Based on that I would date this to the early 50's.  The enamel on the front is bordered in deep hunter green with center vignettes of greens, yellow and red on white.  The backs of the links are covered in green enamel.  The copper has a nice patina which we like to leave as is ... I don't polish these as I prefer the aged look.  It is in excellent condition.  The bracelet measures 6-3/4" long with clasp closed x 1" wide.

This absolutely fabulous Bucherer watch is one of the prizes of my collection and I have finally decided to part with it.

rosette Sterling Silver Figural Art Nouveau Enamel Guilloche Watch - 15 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

This stunning lilac enamel guilloche figural watch has been a prize of mine for years ... it was even featured in an article in Treasures magazine April 2013 (copy of which will be included with purchase). The oval watch face is silver in color with black numerals and hands. The reverse side has a full figure of an Art Nouveau lady with a filmy diaphanous gown and sash ... very pretty and nicely detailed. The matching chain has enamel guilloche elongated links as well as open diamonds which are also covered in lilac enamel guilloche. The enamel guilloche on the watch is excellent but there is some age appropriate loss on some of the links but overall they are mostly intact. The case has the hallmarks with the Bear Rampant which was the Swiss Standard for 935 Sterling Silver prior to 1933. The case is also marked Fresard Swiss and 935 sterling. The watch movement is 15 jewels Swiss by Bucherer, one of the finest watch manufacturers of their time.  The watch measures 1-3/8" long x almost 3/4" wide. The chain is about 27-1/2" long. It is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Here we have another of my faves ... an enamel guilloche ball watch with hand-painted roses on both the watch and the chain ... marcasite jewels around the middle ... and the original velvet lined box with the Bucherer label in the lid. The color is a medium shade of blue and the roses are pink. I love the box as well ... it is blue satin on the outside and has a little pearly button to open it. This watch is truly one of the most stunning you will ever see. The entire watch and chain are in mint condition with no loss of enamel or chips of any kind. There are two of the tiny marcasites missing and I will try to locate a few of these from another piece of jewelry to replace them. It is marked 925 sterling inside the case. The watch measures 3/4" diameter and the chain is 28" long. Circa 1930's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt. 

NOTE: The color of the blue in these pictures is not very true ... it is more of a medium shade -- or a Cornflower blue shade -- and not turquoise or teal as the pictures show. For some reason, I could not get the camera to take an accurate color shot.

The is a stunning watch case made by Adams Watch Co. of sterling silver and turquoise blue enamel guilloche with a blue sapphire push button at the top which opens the watch in the center front. Inside there is a place on either side to put a picture (retaining clips are still intact). The watch face is exquisitely detailed with cobalt blue numerals and iridized blue hands but the best part is the center of the face ... it is richly engraced and diamond cut to reflect the light so that it literally sparkles ... pictures could not do it justice! The back side of the case (or the front if you choose to wear it that way) is done in matching enamel guilloche with flowers in the center design. The watch can be removed from the case and it is marked "Adams Watch Inc. Nickel" on the back of the watch housing. The case is marked "Adams Watch Inc. Sterling Pat. Nov. 9 1926" and a patent number. The watch movement itself is marked Abra Watch Co. Swiss Geneva 6 Jewels. The watch measures 7/8" wide x 1-1/4" high not counting the push stem. There is one tiny spot of enamel loss on the front top left corner*, other than that it only has superficial scuffs visible when held to light. The watch has to be removed from the case and opened in order to be wound and set. It will run but not for extensive length of time.  

*Note: I have played around with touching this spot up with just a bit of nail enamel which can easily be removed if you prefer.  I have added pics showing how it looks.

rosette Turquoise Enamel Guilloche Pocket Watch with Gold Fleur de Lis Back - Pin Set Movement, Maker Unknown

I have no idea of the manufacturer of this lovely pocket watch but it has always been a favorite of mine. The color just speaks to my heart (as I am sure you can tell when looking at my collection, I always gravitate toward the blue shades). This one has an unusual face with turquoise numerals and gold markers by the numbers as well as ornate gold filigree hands. It is so pretty! And the back of the case is done in enamel guilloche rays with gold gilt fleur de lis from end to end. While there is no maker on the movement, it is pin set and is running fine at this time. The enamel guilloche is all in great condition with one exception ... at the lower back there is an area that may have been an earlier repair, it is hard to say, but it was only noticeable to me when I saw the enlarged picture and it prompted me to look closer. To my unaided eye, I couldn't see any problem. The watch measures 1-1/8" diameter not counting stem or bail. Circa 1920's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

rosette "Exhibition" Case Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Lapel Watch with Hand-Painted Roses on Watch & Matching Fob - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

This is a very rare and unique watch made by Bucherer with a visible escapement also known as an "Exhibition" case. I even recently was told that sometimes these were used as salesmen's samples to show the movement of the watch without having to open the case ... an interesting bit of history to be sure! The watch is done in a gorgeous shade of turquoise with hand-painted pink roses on both sides as well as the matching bow-shaped fob. Very sweet! The face is large and easy to read with gold hands and bars for the numbers. Both the fob and the watch are hallmarked for Carl Bucherer and I would date this to the 1930's. The entire watch and fob are in excellent condition with no loss of enamel or chips of any kind. It is marked 925 sterling inside the case. The watch measures 1" in diameter and the bow fob is 1-1/2" wide; overall length is 2-1/4".

rosette Figural Sterling Silver Cobalt Blue Enamel Guilloche Watch with Hand-Painted Variant of Boucher's "Charms of Country Life" Painting & Matching Chain - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

Rarely will you find figural watches made by Bucherer and this one is exquisite in a rich shade of cobalt blue enamel guilloche on the front and sides and even the chain. But what makes it extraordinary is the rendition taken from Francois Boucher's 1740 painting entitled "Charms of Country Life." While a close-up of the painting shows that it is not the finest quality, just the fact that it was even done like this is amazing. The chain has 10 matching cobalt enamel guilloche links that have a deeper blue in the center making it luminous appearing. It is marked 925 sterling inside the case which is also signed Bucherer and has the duck standard mark which began to be used in 1933. All of the enameling is in absolutely perfect condition. The watch measures 15/16" wide x 1" long and the chain is 27" long. Circa 1930's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Bucherer Enamel Guilloche Watch

rosette Sterling Silver Blue Enamel Guilloche Watch with Hand-Painted Roses & E.G. Chain with Original Bucherer Box! - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

A part of my personal collection for over 12 years, this beautiful watch by Carl Bucherer is in a lovely shade of cornflower blue enamel guilloche with hand-painted pink roses on the back. The chain is done in matching blue enamel guilloche. The case is marked 925 sterling and has the bear mark which dates it between 1888 and 1933. And the best part is that it comes in its original box with the Bucherer label inside the lid. The top of the box shows a village scene in Switzerland ... some of the picture is worn at the top corners but just having the original box in itself is amazing! The enameling on the chain is all in perfect condition. The enameling on the front and back of the watch itself is also perfect; however, along the bottom edge there is enamel loss evident in the pictures but when being worn, it is at the very bottom so is not noticeable at all. The watch measures almost 1" wide x 1" long not counting bail or stem and the chain is 31" long not counting bail. It is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Juvenia Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch

rosetteSterling Silver Ruby Red Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch with Matching Chain - 10 Jewel Swiss Movement by Juvenia

This is a very nice little ball watch done in a ruby red enamel guilloche with a matching chain. The watch was made by Juvenia and is 935 sterling silver with a 10 jewel Swiss movement. The enameling on the chain is in excellent condition and is quite pretty with elongated rectangular links with red centers and black on either end. The chain, however, is not very long being about 14" from where it attaches at the top of the enameled bail. On me, it fits as a choker. I believe with a little ingenuity someone could easily have links added to the closure and move the enameled portion down to the center. As for the watch itself, the top half of the ball is in mint condition. However, the bottom half (the half in which the watch itself resides) has an earlier repair which was done, probably by a professional, as it blends in very well and is not even noticeable at a glance. The supersized close-ups I took make it look MUCH worse than it appears. Because of this, I am listing the watch at what I paid for it. The watch measures 3/4" diameter. Circa 1920's - 30's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Bucherer Enamel Guilloche Watch

rosette Marquis Shaped Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Pendant Watch with Hand-Painted Roses, Tassel & Matching E.G. Chain - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

Bucherer is one of my favorite watch makers ... it seems like I always fall in love with their gorgeous designs. This one is a beautiful turquoise blue in a marquis shape with hand-painted roses on the front and back of the case and matching enamel guilloche chain. But look at that tassel! Rarely have I ever - in fact, never! - seen a watch like this. It is fantastic! The enamel guilloche on the watch is pristine and the chain links are all perfect with one exception and it is the tiniest tiniest fleabite on just one of them that is barely noticeable at all. The watch itself measures almost 1-1/2" long x 5/8" wide. The tassel is 2" long and the chain is extra long measuring 33". It has a 17 jewel Swiss movement with 3 adjustments. This one is marked 800 sterling inside the case which opens on a hinged side. Circa 1920's - 30's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Bucherer Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch

rosette Marcasite Jeweled Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch with Hand-Painted Roses & Matching Fob - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

Here is another very prettty Bucherer sterling silver enamel guilloche watch with a marcasite jeweled case and matching fob. This one is being sold as-is for two reasons: first, the watch is not running although all of the parts are intact and second, there is a substantial chip in the enamel around the face of the watch. The good news is that it displays beautifully and the chip is not noticeable until you lift the watch to look at it. It can still be worn as a beautiful piece of jewelry and could even be brought back by an expert in enamel re-touching and a watchmaker (may just need a good cleaning and lube job). I am pricing this one so that there is room left to do this if desired. Please see all pictures. The case is 925 sterling and the fob is 800. Watch measures 3/4" diameter. Fob is 1-1/8" wide x 1" high. Overall length together is 2" long.

rosette Figural Clown Sterling Silver Blue Enamel Guilloche Watch with Matching E.G. Chain - 15 Jewel Swiss Movement by J Grevere

What a fun little pendant watch this is! Done in a lovely shade of blue enamel guilloche (with matching chain), there is a terrific hand-painted clown skipping along and kicking his red hat in the air. It is just so whimsical! I especially like the shape of this one ... it is like a bell. The watch is done in 935 sterling silver and has a 15 jewel Swiss movement by J Grevere. This is a truly beautiful Bucherer candy pink enamel guilloche ball watch with matching enamel guilloche chain. The hands and numerals on the watch face are done in black for easy reading. There are little gold flowers around the face in the blue enamel guilloche. The enameling is all in great condition with one exception and it is felt rather than seen ... the top of the clown's head appears to have a flake in the clearcoat which I only noticed when I was looking with a loupe as my fingers felt something there. But it is not noticeable at all. Enameling on the chainlinks is all perfect. Measures 7/8" diameter (not counting stem) and is 3/4" high (not counting bail). The chain is about 25" long. Circa 1920's - 30's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Here is another beautiful enamel guilloche watch done in a sunny yellow color with a matching enamel guilloche link chain.  It is disk shaped rather than a ball and has a very unique design in the guilloche (the close-up of the back will show what I mean).  There are deep triangular shapes engraved in the underlying sterling and some of these are filled with red enamel which gives it a jeweled effect on the back side.  It has a 17 jewel movement made by Seega Geneve Switzerland.  The case is marked Nadine and B & C and 925 sterling.  Watch measures 3/4" diameter x 3/8" thick (not counting bail or stem).

Bucherer Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch

rosette Sterling Silver Red Enamel Guilloche Ball Watch with Hand-Painted Roses - 17 Jewel Swiss Movement by Bucherer

Bucherer is one of my favorite watch makers ... it seems like I always fall in love with their gorgeous designs. This one is no exception in that it has a deep red enamel guilloche with hand-painted roses around both the face and the bottom half of the ball. The reason so many of the red enamels have a goldish tinge to them is because gold is actually used in the process of making red enamel. This one actually has a goldish red band in the center and the very edges at the center are also golder than the rest of the red. You will be able to see the distinguishing difference in the photos I have taken. The hands and numerals on the watch face are done in gold which reflects the light and makes it easy to read. The gold chain that came with this one is accented with pretty white pearls and long bars that lend to its elegance. The enameling on the watch is all perfect with no chips or damage of any kind. Circa 1920's - 30's, it is in working condition at the time of this writing.  As with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time.  We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Made by Abra on 925 sterling silver, it is covered in baby blue enamel guilloche with the most wonderful hand-painted tennis designs on it: a pair of tennis rackets, 3 tennis balls, and the net! Very, very cute! If you are a tennis buff (and even if you just like unusual jewelry), then this is the watch for you.

rosette Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Lapel Watch with Ocean Motif & Matching Fleur-de-Lis Fob - 17 Ruby Jewel Swiss Movement by Venus

This beautiful lapel watch has been in my collection for almost 15 years and has always been a favorite of mine. It is done in a rich turquoise blue enamel guilloche in an ocean theme with several different fish done in variations of the guilloche pattern in white with seaweed and coral and bubbles in the water. What I especially love is how the fish tails continue from the top half to the bottom half ... a touch of exceptional workmanship and attention to detail! The matching fob is 800 sterling silver with the maker's initials of RW in a diamond (not sure who this is but will try to find out). The watch casing is 925 sterling. This is an extremely rare and beautiful watch and it is in pristine condition. The photo makes the fob look gold but it is actually silver. The hands and numerals on the watch face are done in gold to make them easier to read. Hallmarks inside the case indicate the case was made by Leon Frossard of Switzerland between 1934 - 1944. Watch is 3/4" diameter (not counting bail or stem). Fob is 1" x 5/8" not counting the links at the bottom.

Thomae Sterling Locket

rosette Sterling Silver and Pink Enamel Guilloche Locket by Thomae Co.

This is one of the prettiest lockets I have ever had and the reason is that it was made by Thomae.  This manufacturer did exquisite compacts and jewelry of the finest quality workmanship and when you come across one of these, you are lucky indeed!  The locket has a design of a flower basket with hanging ribbon on both front and back.  Inside you have one side for a photo to be inserted and the original cover and snug ring are still there.  The chain that is with it is pink enamel guilloche links but it is a gold tone, not sterling; however, it goes so nicely with the locket that it never bothered me.  I have had this piece for several years and almost hate to part with it but I figured it is time for someone else to enjoy it.  The chain is a Y shape and the opening diameter is 15".  The locket itself measures 1" high x 5/8" wide.  The original silver chain will be included as well (it is 16" long). Enameling is perfect on both sides; chain links have some very minimal loss.

Argent Dore Pin

rosette Argent Dore Sterling Silver and Enamel Guilloche Pin / Watch Fob

What a gorgeous piece of jewelry this is! A blue enamel guilloche sterling silver pin with pink hand-painted roses on either side. It looks to be a bow but also resembles a butterfly to me ... and the body portion is actually an open-ended clip to hang a watch or a monocle.  It is in mint condition with no enamel loss whatsoever and is hallmarked "Argent Dore, 925" on the back.   Measures 1-3/8" across. (I was told that Argent Dore stands for Sterling in French.)

I don't know much about Gubelin watches but this is just a very pretty piece of jewelry as well as a functioning watch.  One side is a watch and the other side is a lovely pendant with a pretty design on it.  The case is sterling although I have not been able to figure out how to remove the back so that I can photograph the hallmarks. Chain is not original but was with it when I purchased it and it looks nice so I have kept it.  The watch itself measures 3/4" diameter. Watch is presently in working condition ... as with all vintage timepieces, we cannot guarantee working condition for any length of time. We only guarantee it will be working upon receipt.

Hobe' Demi-Parure

rosette Hobe' 14K & Sterling Jeweled Demi-Parure

This exquisite demi-parure bracelet and earrings set was made by Hobe'.  Tons of detail went into the filigree and scrollwork on the bracelet which is marked Sterling and 14K gold.  There are five sections each set with a turquoise stone (may be aquamarines, I have not had them checked). The matching clip-on earrings are shaped like little flowers and each has a turquoise stone in the center as well.  The flowers and scrollwork on the top layer are gold while the little flowers at the bottom of each section and the backing are sterling, giving it a silver/gold coloration.   Bracelet measures 1-1/4" wide almost 8" long but with clasp closed, actual wrist opening is 7"; earrings measure 3/4" diameter. Bracelet comes with safety chain. Seven jewels in all, weight of set is 2.4 ozs.  The condition is very good ... the scrollwork 'leaves' under the flowers are somewhat soft and a few are misshapen. These could be bent back into position easily by a jeweler or someone more skilled than I (very minor as bracelet is so ornate you really don't notice). A few of the stones have very minor chips only visible upon close inspection (I've owned this for years and never saw it until I used a loupe to inspect it prior to listing).
