ANTIQUE VICTORIAN TURQUOISE PEARL FORGET ME NOT BRACELET 15CT GOLD CIRCA 1880
A beautiful Antique late Victorian bracelet fashioned in 15ct Yellow Gold and decorated with a floral display of Forget me nots. The floral links are each dotted with Pearls and Turquoise stones which have long been associated with the Forget me not.
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 rest of the bracelet is made up of Gold curb links and fitted with a box clasp and safety chain. It is very pretty with a lovely sentiment attached.
