ABOUT THIS BRACELET

This cool jewel is a bit of a mystery, but we'll try to solve it. The quintessential Victorian locket, lavishly hand engraved with sweeping scrolls and surrounded by a textured frame with black enamel accents, is inscribed on the reverse with the following: "Made from the watch Floyd's Grandfather, C.J. McInney, Floyd to Betsy April 5, 1941". Evidently a talented jeweler, circa 1941, repurposed Grandpa's watch (that is, melted it down for the gold) to create this locket, and/or matching bracelet, in faithful Victorian style (one would never suspect that it wasn't made 50-75 years earlier) to present to the very fortunate recipient, Betsy. Now, instead of checking your watch throughout the day, you can take a peek at your loved one, all while musing about Floyd and Betsy. Unique to say the least! Crafted in 14K rosy-yellow gold, it adjusts for 5 1/2 to 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.
