Antique circa 1880's Victorian 14k yellow gold handkerchief holder with taille d'epargne enameling and seed pearls. Our enchanting Victorian era ladies accessory is crafted in solid 14K gold and is adjustable to hold a variety of hankies. It is a stunning luxury item that will readily transform into modern day use for weddings or theater use and will be especially grand for a bride's wedding hankie. It is crafted in the form of a buckle and rich in sentiment as the buckle with it's eternal loop forms a symbolic meaning of Eternity,loyalty, strength and protection. Victorian buckle jewelry is beaming with romantic implications. The belt appears to be hand made and is complete with fox tail tassels and enameled buckle with seed pearls. It is adjustable by gently pulling the end.
The band of the belt is .25'' wide and has an inner opening of about 1.25'' but can be made smaller. There is a small finger ring at the opposite end that will adorn a size 6.75 finger. A length of 3'' chain attaches the ring to the holder. The work on the belt and buckle are so beautiful that I would love to see it worn as a ring with the hankie slipped through the band of gold.
