Measuring 7" in inner circumference, this is a larger-than-normal size for these English buckle bangles. It will easily fit an average size wrist. Measuring 1/2" wide, it is a wonderful size to stack or worn by itself. With the rounded construction, it is 1920's rather than 1880's. It is one of the few which is awesome to stack with the engagement bangles to create a mixed metal stack or stack with other silver bangles for a consistent look. Incredible leaf decoration is engraved all-the-way-around on this bangle which is unusual as most decoration is only on the top half. The bangle also has a rather different opening mechanism as the prong on the buckle is the portion which opens. Truly a wonderful buckle bracelet for someone with an average size wrist or wanting to stack bracelets. Please contact us if you would like us to assist in creating a stack.

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.
