A real stunner is this antique Victorian, whitby jet and gold buckle bangle. Smooth highly polished whitby jet panels strung with a carved band to the top and bottom of the panels to produce a belt design. It has circular gold faux buckle holes and a large decorative engraved 9ct gold buckle to the centre with stylised ivy leaves. One of the sentiments ivy represents was the everlasting and buckles represented being bound by love so this was possibly a mourning piece that represented everlasting, unforgotten love for a lost one.It has a gold tone metal and black rubber and hook and loop fastener which is a new replacement and the bracelet has been restrung. Good condition overall, some small nibbles to the jet panels, a couple of scratches on the reverse, one rough mark. Unmarked, buckle tests at a 9 carat gold, jet tested and confirmed as jet. Approx 5.5" length of the panels, 7" total length unstetched and 1.5 width.
