Ancient bronze buckles make great conversation-piece pendants for both men and women, so we acquired quite a few from our English antiquities dealer. Most are medieval, but a few are Tudor (English Renaissance) or Georgian. The one shown here dates from the 14th or 15th century. With both plate and pin intact intact (which is rare), it's large - measuring more than 2 inches by about 1 1/4" - and so beautifully patinated that its touch is like silk.
It's still quite sturdy enough to enjoy as a necklace pendant and you'll be the envy of all when you wear something so exceptional. Just tie on a cord or ribbon and you're good to go.
