ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 9CT GOLD SLIDER HEART BRACELET CIRCA 1900
This exquisite antique Victorian bracelet is crafted around two 9ct Yellow Gold chains which lace through heart-shaped sliders on either side. The hearts slide smoothly along the chains, and are adorned with beautiful forget me not carvings.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
The bracelet is fastened with a heart-shaped padlock, and equipped with a safety chain for added security. It is a truly wonderful example of Victorian craftsmanship and a true historic piece to be treasured.
