Lover's Locket Bracelet
The History Lesson:
This restored Victorian engagement bracelet features gold filled Etruscan design details. This gold filled bracelet comes from a tradition centuries ago in which a groom would present his future bride with a set of bracelets: one to be worn at the beginning of their engagement and the second to be put on the day of her wedding. Women would often pass these down from daughter to daughter.
This bracelet has also been known as a “Lover’s Bracelet” due to the lock clasp: a lock needs a key to open and close, therefore your significant other would likely have been the one to “hold the key”. This bracelet, however, needs no key but uses the small lever on the side of the lock to open and close.
This bracelet measures 2.5” across in diameter and 6” in circumference.
