Temptation Tuesday: Late Victorian Ruby and Diamond Bracelet Pair

One of the great joys when hunting for antique jewelry is finding a pair of bracelets! Victorian bangles were usually made in pairs (you have two ears for earrings, two wrists for bracelets, it makes perfect sense). However, the passage of time or the divvying up of grandma’s jewelry box tended to separate these friends, so coming across such a lovely, in-tact pair is a real treat.

This pair of late Victorian bracelets help us twofold on this tempting Tuesday. We love their swirling design with old cut diamonds, and the rubies they surround are perfect to help us celebrate our friends with July birthdays, as they are this month’s birthstone. The stones are set in silver on 14K gold.

Price available upon request.
