, The Latest in Jewelry. ti
A pretty and clever new bracelet I1
Sfor wearing at dances has just been ,
e invented. Imagine a gold bangle, e
with three slight gold hoops, which
ll a gold pencil case lits. This pencil (
ll is attached to the bracelet by a
y slender chain, so that when it is
e- drawn out to mark the ball pro- h
sy gramme there is no need to restore
it--it looks pretty hanging, and a
re equally well fitted into its place,
e as it is made by a leading jeweler,
Sone who well understands how to,
st make a trifle like this what itt
b should be. For the men threre are
some new sleeve-links and studs.
The very latest fashion in this way
ey is the rough gold and the frosted
t gold. No studs in the rough gold
e have yet been worn, or indeed fin
ished, so they may safely be re
d garded as something new; but the
nd links I have seen, and very well
of they look. Some are made flat,
Dn- with little jewels set in, and others
en- made in balls-a large ball, achain,
ad and then a bar with a little ball at
on each end of it.-London World.
