About

The buckle motif or dog collar was high fashion during the victorian period and often seen in sterling silver after 1850. Silver jewelry was once again a la mode. Citizens other than royalty were able to purchase jewelry due to the spread of wealth brought about by the industrial revolution. The English people were inspired by Queen Victoria who gave a gift of silver jewelry to Jenny Lind, a famous singer, and who herself wore silver jewelry once she came out of mourning, The beauty of English silver craftsmanship was recognized in the necklaces and cuff bracelets of the period. Hand work combined with manufacturing skills created the bracelet you see here. This cuff has a smooth buckle with cannonballs encircling the strap. Engraved on the front are ivy leaves signifying togetherness, as the characteristic of ivy is to entwine with other ivy. Lovely on the skin and dramatic when worn on top of a sleeve, this piece of jewelry always makes a statement and is admired today as it was long ago.The bracelet measures 1 1/2 inches. high. Fits a medium wrist with room to spare. The condition is excellent. English Origin. c.1860-1880. Hallmarked
