SILVER ROUND VICTORIAN STYLE HINGED BANGLE
This delightful Victorian style 5.5mm wide Silver bangle is the perfect accessory to bring in the new Summer season.
Etched upon the front of this beautiful cuff is a diamond cut foliate motif to symbolise the coming of summer representing warmth and hope after a frosty winter and wet spring. It has certainly warmed my heart...
Fastening with a tongue and groove clasp, this pretty arm candy has a safety chain for extra security.
We love the width and presence of this wonderful bangle, adding that extra antique "je ne sais quoi" whilst you step into the sunshine. A similar 1950's Victorian Revival bangle was a hugely popular item in my shop, and a genuine Victorian Aesthetic bangle would set you back between £150-500.
Aestheticism is an intellectual and art movement supporting the emphasis of aesthetic values more than social-political themes for literature, fine art, music and other art forms such as jewellery. This meant that art from this particular movement focused more on being beautiful rather than having a deeper meaning — "art for art's sake". It was particularly prominent in Europe during the 19th century, supported by notable figures such as Walter Pater and Oscar Wilde.
