Named for their resemblance to the gates at Buckingham Palace in London, bracelets like this one became very popular in the late Victorian era. Gate bracelets were made in many different styles, from simple to intricate, sometimes even set with stones. This one caught my eye because of the wonderful wide width of it and also because of the intricate engraving that gives it extra depth and beauty.
Completely hand crafted around 1900 in England, this gate bracelet was made with an eye to exquisite detail. It can be worn with either side up, the engraved side or the smooth one. The bracelet is 7.5 inches long and closes securely with the heart lock clasp. The clasp may not be original to this bracelet, I don’t think it is, but it’s lovely and matches up well; it’s engraved with a leaf pattern on the front and marked with ‘9ct’, ‘GOLD’ and a makers mark ‘W.J.S.’ on the reverse. This bracelet has a silky soft feel and a lovely weight, it weighs 29.3 grams. The links are marked ‘9ct’ as well, for 9 karat gold. The bracelet is 28 mm wide. There are extra links on both the lock and bracelet for a safety chain if one is desired.
Gate bracelets like this one are so imminently wearable, once you put this one on, you might never take it off!
