Paula says - "The term slave bracelet refers to a type of jewelry that has a chain or other attachment from the bracelet to one or more finger rings. This fashion originated in Africa and was likely adopted by Native Americans for tourists after the bracelets became popular in the 1920s American flapper culture.
"This piece has beautiful turquoise and coral stones set in serrated bezels."
