Default Nazi jewelry? (bracelet)

In my rounds today on my way home i stopped by a small shop, and found this swastika bracelet, i thought was a watch fob at first. The thing that made me buy it was....it had the raised O mark on every link. Now i am aware we have never attributed that mark yet, so i felt it compelling enough to post . Most all the silver wash is now gone from wear, but a little still remains on spots on the back.(7" long)178mm give or take a mm.

These couple links have some silver wash still present. I have other german patriotic jewelry, shown in sales books at the time, such as swas's in circles to be worn on chains approx.. 18mm wide (3/4 in". But never seen anything like this.

The swastika is a good luck sign and was used as such for a very long time. And from what I've read, in pre-1933 America it was very popular and loved symbol.

BTW the blue swastika was for long time an emblem of the Air Force of Finland, so this may be some international connection, but more likely just a good luck bracelet. Who knows...

I was suprised that it was only 25.00 so I am not deep into it, but the forum has previously discussed the O mark found on some medals ....I was unaware the blue swas related to finnlands air forces. I didnt expect to solve this bracelets origin until possibly in the future when the O mark is positively identified . Im almost sure it was for a woman because its an inch short to be able to hook to fit on my wrist. Thanks for all your comments, hopefully this may be revisited when this O mark is discussed to see how they compare.
