A beautiful and rare antique late Victorian turquoise and seed pearl bracelet (Circa 1890) made up of 18ct pearl set links connected by six forget me nots set with blue turquoise petals and a pearl centre. It is exceptional to find a pearl and turquoise piece in such condition, as it was common for the gems to be lost. The remaining links are delicately decorated with graduated pearls in an ornate natural form and expertly hand crafted. The bracelet is secured by a small 9ct gold, carved lovers heart locket, a later addition to the original bracelet but in keeping with the piece and for security a gold safety chain.  


Forget me nots according to an an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long-lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
