This product is sold out
This gorgeous vintage sterling silver bracelet with a heart clasp features an original British 1959 sixpence and pearl drop. A totally unique and special bracelet.
The sixpence is known as the lucky coin. During the early 1600's it was customary for the Lord of the Manor to give his bride a piece of silver as a wedding gift. This was symbolically represented by a sixpence coin and that tradition of the sixpence as a symbol of good luck continues today.
Charms have been worn for thousands of years, not just for their decorative appeal, but often to symbolise good luck, love and spiritual forces. Charms were popularised by Queen Victoria which made them fashionable among the elite and wealthy throughout Europe. She also introduced the sentimental and romantic charm which could be seen in the charm bracelets she wore and those she gave as gifts. Charms continued to be a very popular form of jewellery throughout subsequent decades with World War II troops returning home with handcrafted trinkets for their loved ones. Charms became glamorous during the 1940s and '50s with screen stars who wore extravagant charm jewellery made from platinum and diamonds.
The bracelet measures 18cm and has a safety chain.
