This petite little buckle bracelet is hallmarked sterling & signed by silvermakers, Joseph Smith & Sons, which have been in Birmingham since 1858. This is a 1970’s recast of a 19th c hand engraved bracelet, presumably made by the same company. It is a delicate 3/8” wide and ovoid, 2 1/2” x 2 5/8”. It has a safety, clamper clasp as well as a safety guard chain.
This bracelet is another example of the enduring nature of the buckle motif, a symbol of a committed, special relationship.
