Alice Quam bracelet?

Thanks In Advance for Any Info or Value!

I’ve been trying to figure out what this cuff is worth.
I believe it’s the work of Alice Quam.
It weighs 116 grams & has about a 7" inside circumference.
I don’t know the age, but would guess it’s about 40 years old?

I appreciate any help, comments, etc. that anyone has!


You already know that I think it’s pretty wonderful.

Also that because of the bump-outs in the central medallion, this looks particularly Ondelacy.

In fact, compare this Ondelacy cuff with Alice Quam’s work.

Wow, Pete this is beautiful. Where have you been hiding this one?

It is always great to have an Alice Quam in your collection. I did a google search and found four for sale, ranging from about $1000 to $3000. This is a unique piece. Usually her preference was with stones that showed pure blues that are free of matrix. This is a nice change, those stones are full of character. You just can’t replace these cuffs was you sell them. I would put this cuff $1800 - $2400.


Here’s another Alice Quam bracelet with a similar central motif. As Jason says, these stones don’t have much matrix in them.
