We went to an auction last night, and husband bought this... It's Sterling and Hematite, and I can't find anything similar with any kind of price range to see if we got a good deal. I mean, we paid about nothing for it, but I want to know! I've been looking all morning, trying to figure out if it's special or not. There is an E (<--- printed just like that) across from the sterling mark. I think it's plated since it doesn't say a silver content. But I'm not sure... I'm a furniture and glassware buyer! Research got me all excited because the E mark I could find meant a brief early 1940's mark by Eisenberg. But this piece reflects nothing that they make! They're all about the bling costume stuff and this is not high shine bling. But they did make some weird stuff, nothing was a slave bracelet. So, I'm trying to find out what this E mark means when not speaking of Eisenberg, since I highly doubt it is that. The auction has it out separate instead of with a lot, but they didn't say anything about it and we got it cheap.
