Antique Victorian Forget Me Not Bracelet, circa 1980

About

This Victorian Silver Albertine bracelet is Circa 1890. This lovely bracelet is complete with two engraved beads and an Enamel forget me not Panel, which all leads to a T bar. Forget-me-not, O Lord! is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time when the poor knight suddenly fell in and sank to the bottom.  Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one and promptly drowned. This little tale reportedly dates to around the 15th century, but no doubt had different permeations along the way, as romantic stories often do. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this. Commissioned all in Silver. Each bead is engraved all round, with a beautiful central forget me not panel which is also engraved on the reverse too. The superior craftsmanship on this bracelet is just superb. This looks outstanding when worn and steeped in Victorian history. It weighs 13 grams. Will fit a 7 inch wrist. The bracelet measures 8 inches. The largest panel measures 15mm across x 17mm down. Excellent condition all round.
