The "Buckle" theme in jewelry is in right now and this is the original! How historical is that!
The buckle (a very common theme in jewelry of the time) meant self-defense, strength and protection.
Flower motifs were also popular in Romantic Period jewelry, (the Romantic Period from 1837 to 1861). Bracelets and bangles were very big—literally. Bracelets were composed of hand-worked gold links as well as gold chains punctuated by lozenges with enameled floral decorations at their centers. Large bangles with hinged clasps were often made out of rolled gold to produce scroll-like reliefs, some of which were accented with figures or animals in silver and other materials.
