Hailing from England with full British hallmarks for 1883 this wide Victorian bangle bracelet is beautifully engraved with a central row of forget-me-not flowers in between an embossed turret pattern that is raised up. A row of silver beads accenting the top and bottom adds to the lovely decoration that adorns the front.
Super quality in fairly thick gauge silver the bangle is crafted on the oval with rolled edges for comfort and strength. It is hinged at one side it and it has a hidden shovel clasp with a push button at the other.
An absolute classic of the era these floral engraved bracelets made for popular romantic gifts for sweethearts and brides. They were often personalised with engraved names on the inside or plain back. We particularly like the pretty silver bead decoration and stepped profile on this one, the British hallmarks with an antique date are always an added treat too!
