Garnet and PearlSpider and GrosgrainRibbon Bracelet


The Victorians were great fans of novelty jewelry. Ornaments of curiosity were designed with consideration for beauty and color, but also with the intent to amuse and delight the wearer. Such eccentric styles include mounted hummingbird heads, tiny golden renderings of mice, and bejeweled insects like this pearl and diamond spider slide charm strung on a black grosgrain ribbon. The gold fittings on the ribbon are cleverly designed to make the bracelet size adjustable to fit anywhere from a 5.5" to 8.5" wrist.
