Product Description
Vintage Pearl Beige Moonglow Lucite Stretch Bracelet is an absolutely gorgeous vintage piece and in mint condition.

The bracelet is made up of 12 discs with applejuce spacers and a rhinestone at the center of each disc. The coloring is layered and results in a stunning effect with pearl moonglow layered upon clear.

Each disc is 5/8" in diameter and 1/4" thick and fits up to a 7" wrist comfortably.

Moonglow is a form of lucite that first gained popularity in the 1940s and 50s. Moonglow gets its name due to its moon-like shine and shimmer when light hits its surface. It has a moonstone, almost cats' eye look that seems it has its own inner light.

Moonglow lucite was made into earrings, bangle bracelets, beads, buttons, and man-made cabochons that were set into earrings and brooches. Moonglow came in many colors ranging from bright sunshine yellows, bold blues, radiant reds, soft pastels to deep emerald greens. Although moonglow was primarily fashionable during the 40s and 50s, it continued to be used in jewelry until the 1960s.

Moonglow is comprised of acrylic resin and of heat-set plastic. This process was called "thermosetting." Unlike today's comtemporary plastics that feel hollow and insubstantial, vintage lucite, especially moonglow, has a nice weight to it. It feels strong and cool against the skin.

If you are a fan of moonglow, I have several other pieces and will be adding more.
