Victorian “In Remembrance of Netley” Bracelet

$4,800

A very fine quality Victorian bracelet with the name "Netley" spelled out in sparkly rose cut diamonds. To the back of the bracelet, visible to the wearer only, is engraved "March 1884 In Recollection Of". Netley is a small village in Hampshire, England. Jane Austen is known to have stayed there and explored the ruins of the medieval Netley Abbey. Later on in the 19th century, Britain’s largest military hospital was founded in Netley - the Royal Victoria Hospital. It was a very important place - Queen Victoria herself laid the foundation stone, and later visited many times. Dr Watson, of Sherlock Holmes fame, trained there as a surgeon for the army. Patients from campaigns all over the world would be brought here. Someone clearly spent a very special month in Netley and commissioned this beautiful bracelet as a souvenir of that time.
