The symbolism and motifs behind the Victorian bangle bracelets, with their quaint floral bouquets and plants and trails of leaves well known. Our Sterling silver bangle has two carved stylized vases of flowers on either side, a vertical array of flowers next to each and at center, what appears to be two vertical daisies and leaf tendrils. This bracelets are quintessentially Victorian; sentimental jewelry always had associated meanings behind different flowers. Flowers were known as "messengers of friendship and love" (Aime Martin), and this was exactly the purpose they filled on jewelry during this period. The bangle is dated C1880.
The bracelet measures 7 1/4" around on the outside and has a depth of approximately 1/4", and is 1 1/2" wide.
