c1880 Silver Ivy Buckle Bracelet

c1880 Silver Ivy Buckle Bracelet

As English ivy grows and grows, it forms an inseparable bond with whatever it clings to. To the Victorians, ivy was a meaningful symbol commonly used in jewelry to express fidelity, friendship, and eternity! This gorgeous silver hinged bangle is beautifully hand-chased with an ivy design that covers the entire front surface. The belt design carries similar symbolism: as it loops around and lays upon itself, it becomes endless and represents eternity. A belt lends its strength to where it is needed– whether holding up a pair of slacks or keeping an old truck firmly shut. This bracelet, with its heavy symbolism, makes a very meaningful gift, and was intended as an expression of strong, everlasting bonds. The bracelet has minimal denting, mostly on the backside, and is has excellent functionality. The secure, click-in hidden clasp is further reinforced by a four-chain safety chain. The bangle is 1 inch thick and measures 6 3/4 inches around, fit for an average, or slightly smaller wrist.
