This antique Victorian peacock bracelet was made for an extremely small wrist! Even my super thin friends have tried it on, and it was too small. Was this elaborate bracelet made for a child or perhaps a teenager? Or were Victorian women just really tiny? I so wanted to wear this bracelet! I have tried everything and to no avail. It just does not fit.

Made of a rolled gold with gold and silver applied designs. There are beautiful engraved details on the front panel. Look at those sweet little birds flying above the peacock. It has very detailed applied granular and wire work. All done in the Etruscan revival style that was so popular during this era. This bracelet dates to C1875 -1880.

The peacock symbolized resurrection, beauty of the soul, and immortality. It was often used in Victorian mourning jewelry.

Measurements:
inside circumference: approximately 5 3/4"
top to bottom: 3/4"
inside: front to back 1 3/4"
inside: side to side 2"

Condition:
There is quite a bit of wear to the rolled gold finish, inside and out. It has a place for a safety chain, but the hardware for this chain is missing. Long gone. The shape of the bracelet is a little off. You can see on the back of the bracelet, that it has a slightly pink tint. The clasp works well and closes tightly. I have priced this bracelet accordingly.

Please keep in mind that colors will vary slightly on different computer monitors.
