One of the nicest buckle bangles we have had in a long time. Has the traditional ivy forming the decoration on the bangle and belt portion with the buckle being plain. Square buckle rather than being rounded like most gives this bangle a more tailored and different look. Measuring 1" wide, it is the perfect width to either stack with another or be worn on its own. The ivy symbolizes everlasting love while the buckle itself symbolizes loyalty and protection. What a fabulous combination on such a gorgeous bangle. Perfect for someone searching for a traditional buckle bracelet.
Has hallmarks on the interior of the back of the bangle.
One of the most popular motifs in English silver bangles is the buckle. This fascination is due to the unusual subject matter as well as symbolic meaning. In Victorian times, the buckle signified loyalty, strength, and protection.
Dating primarily to the 1880's, these English silver jewelry pieces are extremely special. Each piece was produced for a specific woman. These were not randomly produced. During Queen Victoria's reign, this jewelry became popular as she, herself, would wear the jewelry in order to promote the industry. The pieces were made for the English market and not for export. Hence, these pieces are not commonly seen in the U.S.
