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.
