ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Five gleaming bright cornflower blue sapphires, accented with high-color old mine-cut diamonds, adorn the top of this lightly hand fabricated hinged bangle. The safety chain is embellished with an 18K gold love token. Not surprisingly in the sentimental Victorian Era, such tokens (coins which had been removed from circulation and smoothed out on one or both sides) were given as a keepsake, expressing the affection of the giver. Often, as in this case, one side was ornately engraved with the giver's initials. Silver coins were usually used for ease of engraving and because they were less costly, so to receive a gold token was special, indeed. Rendered in 14K yellow gold, the bangle measures 6 1/2 inches.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
