Story

Silver jewelry for beauty of silver alone took to the forefront on jewelry fashion during the 1880s.

Showy lockets, wide book chains, suites of jewelry and bangle bracelets were part of every fashionista's repertoire.

This Aesthetic Movement's Japonaiserie flavor and archeological revival touches are a pleasure to behold and wear.

A scarce subject matter, a rose gold textured, tree branch rises in a diagonal with yellow gold leaves and berries of more rose gold. Perhaps it is a hawthorn, but your thoughts are always welcome.

Beside this, two cartouches show off their hand engraved swirls and curls, resembling leaves and vines as well as abstract forms. Cannonballs of silver define the top and bottom edges.

Hinged, the back area of unadorned.

Please note that the gold coloration is created with a thin layer of gold over silver.

Symbolism: It is said that the English hawthorn's canopy covers the fairies who live beneath, and they in turn protect the tree. It represents love and protection and a superstition lingers that it should never be cut down or branches removed. A good lesson for us today no matter the tree species. Other associations include fertility, abundance, and longevity.
