Guest Book
Absolutely charming Victorian sterling cuff with 3 arrangements of flowers, each one unique, and various types of flowers, the leaves and petals of which are overlaid in rose and yellow gold "accents", each flower with its own meaning. The translation of the meanings of various flowers was a popular Victorian pastime, with published guide books to help them along the way. Each arrangement is set on a charming stylized "heart" vase in rose gold. Delicately carved leaves and floral patterns bedeck the space between the arrangements. Top and bottom of the bracelet have a scalloped edge, each edge further ornamented with a small silver bead. The bracelet measures 1 1/2 inches in width, 1/4 inch in depth and 7.25 inches in diameter measured around the outside.
