ANTIQUE VICTORIAN GARNET PADLOCK BRACELET 15CT GOLD CIRCA 1860 BOXED
This wondrous antique Victorian padlock bracelet has been intricately crafted in 15ct Yellow Gold. The smooth snake-skin patterned chain articulates beautifully, flowing around the wearer’s wrist and matching every movement. Two fancy faceted links hold the central padlock. It is equipped with a safety chain for extra security, and comes complete with its original box.
The delicately engraved padlock is crafted around a deep red cabochon Garnet at the front. On the reverse a panel can be opened. Currently it holds the hair of a previous owner’s loved one, which can be removed if preferred, to allow you to insert your own precious memento.
This is a truly spectacular piece, and a wonderful example of the craftsmanship and skill of the original Victorian jeweller.
