Antique Victorian Pair of 14k Black Enamel Buckle Bangles
Details: A wonderful, sentimental matched set of Victorian black enamel and 14k gold bangle bracelets captures the classic buckle motif signifying "locking in your love." Each bangle is decorated with contrasting stripe and floral motifs as well as a lovely overall engraved pattern. Pairs of bangles such as this were often giving as a wedding present - one was given upon engagement and the other given on the wedding day. The bangles open with a hinge and have a tongue and groove closure that closes with a satisfying snap.
They can be worn together or one on each wrist. These are very collectable and in good antique condition with a few minor interior dents. These fashionable bangles are the ultimate gift for yourself or shared with a loved one.
Measurements:The bracelet is 1/2" tall and measures about 6" around the interior of the bangle. These are best for a small wrist.
Origin: American c. 1880's-1890's
