The bangle bracelet graced the wrists of most Victorian, well dressed women. It was as popular as the lockets, and suited daytime attire. This example is a tailored, singularly beautiful strap and buckle design. The buckle is hammered and glistens as if it were cut steel. Rare to find this type of work in a bracelet, and it is quite striking. Juxtaposed to the simplicity of the strap and eyelits, and set upon a background of engraved foliage, it is an elegant composition.
The bracelet measures 1 1/4 inches long (on the buckle ) and 1 inch long without the buckle. The back is unadorned, typical of the time period. It has English hallmarks for sterling. It was made in Birmingham , circa 1893 and has initials of the maker, WJC.
The bracelet's inner circumference is approximately, 7 1/4 inches. It opens and closes with a secure integral push clasp. Tiny, negligible wear marks. Condition is superb.
England, circa 1890
