ANTIQUE GEORGIAN BRACELET AMETHYST PINCHBECK CIRCA 1800
An exquisite antique Georgian bracelet featuring an ornate box clasp decorated with four natural Amethysts, approx. 1.25ct in total among a bed of Golden leaves.
The bracelet is made up of intertwined pinchbeck links gilded in 18ct Yellow Gold with three larger barrel links engraved with fabulous 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.
It is a stunning antique piece displaying expert Georgian craftsmanship.
