Antique: Victorian Silver Bangle Bracelet, Buttoned Cuff or Shirt Cuff Motif, Hallmarked 1883
This gleaming antique English sterling silver bangle has a one-of-a-kind, buttoned shirt-cuff motif. From the Victorian Period, this motif is highly sought after and a bit hard to find. It's the first double cuff we've found.
You can see the quality in the realistic details: from the finely twisted (granulated) silver cord that mimics the thread or stitches around the button holes to the center panel that looks like a corset.
It has a push-in tongue and groove closure, which closes securely.
Pairing a heavy linked Albert watch chain or collar necklace with a silver buttoned cuff bangle can transform jeans and a t-shirt, or add a bit of edge to a black cocktail dress.
