Matched pair of rose and yellow gold Victorian era bracelets circa 1860/80. Bangles such as these were typically separated amongst daughters in later generations it is rare for a pair to remain together for so many years.
This pair has a bold two tone look with bright yellow gold and rose gold details. The rose gold decorations are 14k gold. The core of the bracelets are brass with heavy yellow gold plating.
The bracelet was a favorite accessory of a finely appointed Victorian woman and it is said they would wear them stacked from wrist to elbow! When sets such as these are found still together they are often referred to as 'wedding bracelets'. As we have learned the tradition the bracelets would begin as an engagement gift and worn upon the bride's wedding day.
Sold as a set. Each is hinged at side with push-tab closures and security chains. Each bangle measures .75" wide with an inner circumference of 6.1".
Shown on model with a thin pair of pearl detailed wedding bracelets (available on our online shop) and her own custom Bell and Bird diamond eternity bands.
