Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

An adorable Victorian double heart bangle set with two heart-shaped moonstone cabochons surrounded by seed pearls and topped with a pearl and diamond-set bow. The bangle itself is made up of three flat bands, with open space in between each, that flare out towards the gemset head. It's a wonderfully elegant piece; crafted in 18k gold it was made in England in the late 19th Century, circa 1880.

The bowed double heart was a popular motif in Victorian sentimental jewellery, and for obvious reasons. It represents two lovers, side by side, and such pieces were often given to the bride as a wedding gift.
