The Best of Victorian in a Hinged Bangle

Sold  Item: 1522

Gold and turquoise are such a glorious combination - the Victorians saw this beautiful combination and used it often. This 18kt hinged bangle bracelet conceals a compartment under the turquoise half bead central motif surrounded by two rows of fine rope overlay. The hand engraved stylized floral and leaf design completes the central element and continues onto the shoulders. 'Elizabeth Parry Charlton' is beautifully hand engraved on the interior. All original except for the addition of the safety chain.
