This lovely bracelet features hand engraving, separately applied components and a beaded edge, a design popular in the late 1800’s. It is unmarked sterling, however, and the hinge construction is consistent with a 20 th c piece.
The buckle, a sign of allegiance or enduring love, has remained popular throughout the ages. It has been particularly popular during times of war, as a love token between sweethearts.
These designs have been copied, upgraded & reproduced throughout the 20th c. As the date of origin for this piece is unclear, I have priced it as a very high end reproduction.
It is in excellent estate condition, but is missing one tiny bead on the belt, which is only noticeable if you look for it.
It is 1/2” wide, with an ovoid shape that is 2 1/8” x 2 1/2”.
