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.
