|Thank Victorian England for beautiful silver such as this elegant, completely textured silver cuff bracelet accented with small gold flowers. The flowers seem to be appliqued on to the silver cuff. This is a bracelet to wear joyfully as often as one wishes, day or evening. We think of it as a crossover piece of jewelry. It appeals to both antique jewelry lovers as well as clients who want strong, good looking contemporary jewelry. English silver jewelry became extremely popular during the later half of the 19th century due to the interest of Queen Victoria. The queen gave gifts of silver to people she admired and wore it personally with her multitude of jewels. The silver industry, mostly in Birmingham expanded hugely to meet the increased popularity brought about by the sovereign as well as the fact that the gentry could now afford to own jewelry. This bracelet is an example of the fine silver produced during the period between 1860 and 1880. Collectors of antique jewelry seek and wear it regularly. Inner measurement is 6 3/4 in. Excellent condition.|
