PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FOR Canterbury Bracelet

A Signals bestseller, inspired by heirloom Victorian jewelry, made in the USA. Sparkling, colorful. Trademarked design. A dainty sequence of lead-free pewter charms: ovals, diamonds, crescents, hearts, and squares. Plated in gold, silver, and bronze, Hand-set with faux pearls, colored crystals, and vintage stones. Emblems slide freely on a double chain. Bracelet secures with a fold-over clasp. Clasp is embellished with a garnet baguette. Safety chain. 7 1/2" long. From Los Angeles jewelry artist, designer, and historian Shelley Cooper. Made in the USA. The story of the slide bracelet is a story of changing fashions, changing times, and leftovers. The Victorians originally used slides on watch chains as decorations or mementos with personal significance. They included lucky charms, family shields, emblems, and symbols of clubs, social groups, or occupations. Many were precious metal, ornately decorated, carved, engraved, set with seed pearls and bejeweled. Some Victorian watch chains were as cluttered with slides and charms as their wearers' homes were stuffed with furnishings. As pocket watches were replaced by wristwatches, what was to be done with the slides? They were too precious to set aside or hide away. Someone came up with the idea of stringing them on bracelets, and the slide bracelet was born. Later, as stickpins became pass??, someone removed the head of a pin, attached it to a slide box (the hardware that allows an ornament to move freely on a chain), and suddenly there were even more possibilities for fabulous bracelets. If you could do this with stickpins, why not rings, small pins, earrings, even buttons? The slide bracelet was itself a victim of changing fashion. It went out of style for a while and was rediscovered (along with other Victorian jewelry) in the 1940s. Ever since, it has been worn by women who appreciate these colorful, chunky bracelets and their one-of-a-kind look and feel.

                    I purchased this bracelet as a gift for my grandmother because she enjoys unique jewelry that she can mix, match and wear everyday. It is a beautiful piece.

                        I was pleased with the necklace, bracelet and gift bags. I was concerned when I ordered them they wouldn't be as grand as the photos. My wife loved them! Nuff said!
