Beautiful Victorian snake chain bracelet designed as two rows of chain that has Lover's Knots around 5 cabochon garnets.
A heart with another cabochon garnet hangs from four of the knots, with one knot heart free as it holds the clasp.
The back of every locket has a glass back with woven hair inside (which can be removed and replaced with something else)
The hearts are engraved with a foliate motif.
I dont think this is a mourning piece. Contrary to belief not all pieces with hair were for mourning. I think this is a bracelet with hair from family members as tokens of love.
The hearts measure approx 15mm long.
The garnets inside the knots measure approx 8mm x 9mm
The bracelet is 7" long
weight - 26.5g
tests as 18+ carat gold
I wouldn't like to shorten this bracelet. It could be done by 5mm near the clasp but no more.
