ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN FORGET ME NOT BANGLE 9CT GOLD DATED 1918
This beautiful antique Edwardian bangle is fully hallmarked and dated Birmingham 1918.
The bangle is beautifully engraved all round with fabulous detailed workmanship and lovely Forget me not flowers.
‘Forget-me-not, O Lord!’ is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time when the poor knight suddenly fell in and sank to the bottom. Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this.
The bangle is stamped 375 for 9ct Yellow Gold and fitted with a safety chain for added security when worn.
A beautifully made Edwardian piece and steeped in history.
