Victorian Ruby & Pearl Celestial Bracelet
Sold!

Honeymoon jewelry was a late Victorian novelty. Most often seen in the form of a brooch, these jewels always featured a crescent moon (for obvious reasons), and a flower (to represent the sweetness of nectar), or a bee (ditto). These jewels would be given by a groom to his new bride on the eve of their honeymoon. This c. 1880 piece dazzles with pearls and rubies and features a crescent moon and star amid swirls of flowers and leaves.
