This quality Antique Curb Bracelet has an engraved heart padlock fastening, modelled in 9ct Gold, dating to Birmingham, 1915.

This bracelet is all original and displays very pretty embossed links at intervals around the chain. It also has a full set of hallmarks, including the maker's mark, making this piece very collectable.

Padlock bracelets became popular during the Victorian period, they were worn by women whose significant others were leaving for an extended period of time. The bracelet would be locked onto the woman’s wrist by the padlock charm, to which only her beloved would have the key- he would then open it upon his return.

This bracelet is a beautiful example of this style, which is in excellent antique condition, complete with a safety chain.

This antique bracelet is now 109 years old! However, it remains in very good condition for its age; structurally, the bracelet is sound and features no signs of thinning or wear. There is a tiny hole on one of the links, but it is only noticeable if you are looking for it and it isn't seen whilst wearing the bracelet. There is some light surface wear in keeping with age on the padlock, but nothing that deflects from the piece's beauty.
