Jewellery with history

I've made this solid silver bangle from a of Victorian sterling silver pickle fork. The stunning twist along the original handle adds a lovely dimension and enhances the light reflected from the piece. It really is a beautiful bangle!

It bears the  original hallmarks on the inside and the certificate from The Assay Office which accompanies the bangle confirms the original date of manufacture to be Birmingham 1898 - it's 123 years old.

This bangle is made from antique silverware and as a result often has signs of its previous life which forms part of its character.

What you get

Each bangle will be accompanied by a change of use certificate from The Assay Office and comes boxed and ready to give as a gift.

Size

The internal diameter of the bangle is 6.5cm and this can be adjusted slightly to fit.

Dimensions

The bangle measures 16.5mm at its widest point and 3.1mm at the narrowest and weighs 16.3g.

Origins

Spoon rings originated in 17th century England and were originally used as wedding rings. Servants could not afford to have wedding rings made of precious metals so they would steal the silverware from the manor houses and have them turned into wedding rings. For a time you could tell who the servants were working for by the crest on their rings.
