Special Pinchbeck & Brass Bracelet with Victorian Padlock
Victorian jewelry is as complex in its symbolism, sentiment, and design as the fashion, architecture, and decor of the time. Worn as an ornament, a love token, or a remembrance, jewelry not only completed the well-dressed lady’s costume but also denoted her position in society, her marital status, and her sense of self.
Here at the Curio, we pride ourselves in being able to offer a jewel for every collector, and this phenomenal chain featuring a vintage 'victorian look' bracelet, and true victorian padlock is a personal favorite and testament to that goal. I love the detail of the floral patterning across the large mariner links that beautifully interact with victorian style infinity links on the bracelet, as balanced by the scrolling 19th century English roccoco revival of the padlock.
