Napier Tropicana Charm Bracelet

The Napier Charm Bracelet

The Napier Charm Bracelet

The Napier charm bracelet has been a coveted collectible to own in the realm of costume jewelry collecting. Historically, The Napier Co. had a long-standing reputation for creating and producing, high-quality charm bracelets. The bracelets were as whimsical as the designer’s creativity—lending a sense of play in a intensely competitive and serious market of American Fashion Jewelry. When tailored jewelry was more the norm, the charm bracelet gave women a perfect outlet. The charm bracelet, which was sometimes called a “conversation piece,” was the ideal expression of fun, sentiment and adventure.

The bracelet below called, “Tropicana,” dates back to 1955. It was one of Napier’s best sellers designed by Eugene Bertolli.
