Here is another buckle made into a choker. Odd, that I hadn't seen these before, and this time, I saw them from two different dealers. Again, this is a way to enjoy the beautiful Georgian buckles, without destroying their integrity. This is just slid into the velvet, and the grips hold it in place. This is a particularly nice example, with diamonds, and the white enamel "buttons." Imagine wearing diamonds on your shoes or on your trousers at the knee! This buckle is circa 1800, The entire thing, with the velvet ribbon, weights 14.37 grams. The buckle itself measures 2 inches North to South, and nearly 1 inch East to West. This looks stunning as a choker.
