Victorian Turquoise Pearl Bird Heart Necklace Bangle Set, Saint Espirit

I was shopping at Newark, which bills itself as 'England’s Largest Antiques Fair' (a claim which I heartily believe), when I came across this breathtaking set. I had just begun my day and started out by visiting a dealer that I know quite well and wanted to buy from first. I picked out a few things, but my eye kept going back to the robin’s egg turquoise in the bracelet and necklace. The gold was warm to the touch and the pearls added just the right amount of ‘je ne sais quois’. I'd only brought a limited amount of cash along, so I was avoiding buying any bigger ticket items in order to stretch my pounds out a bit, but love just can't be stopped, and my brain was singing a little love song to this pair of elegant beauties. Long story short, here I am, with two pieces I’m excited to share with you!

This fantastic two-piece set was handcrafted in England around 1890. It’s a Victorian-era pair consisting of a bangle and a necklace, both silver gilt with a turquoise heart bird and flower motif. This set weighs 25.5 grams and has been acid tested. The necklace measures 17.5 inches in length with the drop portion measuring 38.5 x 30.5 mm. The bangle measures 7 inches in length, and 15 x 67 x 6 mm off the wrist. It contains a safety chain, so you’ll never have to worry about a thing. It bears a maker’s mark which reads, “BS”.

For a beautiful gift or a treat for yourself, this set will bring a touch of elegance and history into your life.
