I would think they were part of a sweetheart bracelet.

Very lovely, why do you date it as post-war?

My thought was that the paratrooper had this made after returning from the ETO.


Your thoughts please....

Best regards,
Difficult to tell. Do the diamonds check out as original? I guess that they are based on the settings.

My these were more popular during the war then after, so it is possible; however, proving it might be another problem.

Yes, this is a sweetheart bracelet piece. The stones are usually costume jewelry type clear crystals. Actual diamonds would be secured more carefully. I've had a few like this over the years.
