A fabulous pair of Victorian bangles. This style of half hoop bangle was popular in the mid to late Victorian period, and the style remains surprisingly modern and wearable. These two bracelets are identical in most ways, save for the sapphires featured in one bracelet and the rubies in the other. The sapphires are bright and lovely, while the rubies are vivid and colourful. Throughout both bracelets, the old brilliant-cut diamonds are twinkly and lively. These bracelets are wonderful representations of Victorian style and are perfect worn together or apart.
