Obsession: Victorian Bracelets

annaheld

Recently at work [Walton's Antique Jewelry] we've acquired some gorgeous Victorian bracelets that have heightened my interest in that time period. We have several that each feature a certain style or look--like Etruscan gold work, bloomed finish, black details (onyx, black enamel, jet), and matching pairs. To find a pair of bracelets that are still in excellent condition is rare. Victorians often wore matching bracelets on each wrist. We have a pair of rose gold, black onyx Victorian bracelets which are very similar to the first bracelet below. That pyramid shaped onyx is insane!

Victorian Bracelets for Global Village are wonderful. As a student of English Literature, it's an addition to my literary knowledge as well. I have always fascinated Victorian era, but these bracelets are adding more colors to that 'stored data'. The post is not only informative, but the structure is also well fabricated. Carefully chosen words have striking effects. I love Victorian 18 K yellow gold and coiled bracelet. Beautifully conceived and designed. I wonder what the designer would be thinking then? Will he or she be thinking about Victorian princes and princesses. These feelings are awesome.

On the other hand, diamonds and enamels share glowing effect, which is appealing to aesthetic sense. Yes, only design has the sign of approval. No matter if these are Victorian bracelets or Medieval bracelets, ladies and lords would definitely prefer to have them for their loved ones.
