Story

Dating to 17th century England, piqué is an antique technique used to ornament items of tortoise shell, mother-of-pearl or ivory with a fine patterned inlay of gold or silver. With their love of natural materials, the Victorians incorporated piqué into their repertoire of jewelry.

Two-part construction allows this bangle to effortlessly wear with its black elastic interior expansion and contraction. Deep brown natural tortoise shell is the medium which is inlaid with a wide band of silver flanked by two narrow stripes of gold placed along the center of the bracelet. Emanating from that central band is gold inlay reminiscent of a Gothic inspired trellis or choir screen. Buttery smooth on the interior, the bracelet is a pleasure to own as well as to wear.

Date: Circa 1870.
