Offered in fine condition this Victorian Aesthetic Sterling Silver bangle is a beautiful object to behold!
Crafted in Victorian England during the 1800's to the very highest quality. The bangle is fairly wide with a wonderfully detailed ivy leaf design that would have been applied painstakingly by hand.
Not only is this beautiful but the ivy leaf was an important motif during the Victorian Era- symbolizing of ever-lasting fidelity and love. As such it would make a gorgeous romantic gift!
The bangle ism't hallmarked but can confidently be dated to the late 1800's by the method and quality of its manufacture, the beautiful aged patina, and of course the recurring Victorian symbolism of the ivy leaf and belt buckle.
The buckle or belt was a also a symbol of love throughout the 1800's, and represented the idea of being bound together in a loop that never begins and never ends.
It is the same beautiful piece of jewellery now as it was all those decades ago, complete with the original safety chain and working clasp.

The bangle is in superb antique condition for an item 130 years old, and is ready to be worn & enjoyed. It open and closes shut tight with a satisfying "click". The engraved half of the bangle looks almost mint, with only minor signs of wear commensurate with age to the back. There are some light scratches and dings to be seen to the back but in our opinion they don't detract from the beauty of this item, rather only add to it's rich history. This bangle has lived, loved and is here to tell the tale!
