ANTIQUE VICTORIAN STERLING SILVER FORGET ME NOT BANGLE DATED 1883
A fabulous antique Victorian bangle showcasing a stunning front gallery with a decorative engraved border and three detailed 18ct Rose Gold Forget me nots.
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 bangle modelled in strong Sterling Silver and fitted with a large snapper clasp. It is a wonderful piece of history with hallmarks inside dating it to 1883.
