These lovely wide antique sterling silver bangles are typical of the late Victorian period of the 1890's and not only sit nice and close to the wrist thanks to its oval hinged shape and design, but look even more amazing when they are highlighted with rose and green gold as can be seen here in this one. Measuring 32.1mm wide, the design running along the edge looks so elegant as does the beautiful floral design in the the middle. This is where the use of both rose and the rarer green gold work perfectly to enhance and highlight the bangle. Gold can be made in different colours by being alloyed with other metals, such as to produce rose gold, it is made by primarily adding more copper to the gold when being alloyed resulting in a lovely warm tone to it, and today although not very common, green gold is made by adding silver to the gold, however the green colour is more a soft green-yellow colour. Years ago cadmium was added resulting in a stronger colour, and while never a strong green such as yellow or white gold, the tone of green in antique pieces is more pronounced and is used perfectly here to highlight the leaves in the design. With a border highlighted in rose gold to somewhat frame each segment, this is a perfect example of an antique piece of jewellery that is not only 130 years old but one that can so easily be worn on a daily basis and dressed up for that special event during the evening.

This beautiful antique double sided locket was made in the 1860's at the height of what is called the "Romantic period" ofÂ the Victorian era, and is so beautiful on each side and has such a wonderful tactile feel to it. Made in 9 carat gold, one side is set with a turquoise and the other a cluster of turquoise surrounding a ruby. Both sides have an engine turned design that leads to the border which is so beautifully carved and the entire locket is still in exceptional condition which is made all the more amazing when you consider that it was made over 170 years ago. Measuring 21.7mm across by 32.5mm, inside it still holds an original lock of hair, and while many might consider this mourning jewellery, this is not necessarily the case as hair was often given to loved ones a token of love and with the bright blue turquoise and the absence of black, this all points away from mourning jewellery.
