Georgian Cut Steel Buckle & Silver Bracelet.
This fabulous Georgian Cut Steel shoe buckle had to be a bracelet as the natural curve fits perfectly on the wrist.
We have added two silver chains to secure it and also traditional bull dog clasp.
The refracted surface of cut steel was known as poor man's diamonds.
Production of Cut Steel is thought to have begun in the 16th C. From 1750 decorative pieces began to appear, as "Stars for the nobility" jewellery and hair adornments among the designs and often combined with precious jewels . In the late 18thC a Birmingham manufacturer began major production creating cut steel shoe buckles to adorn the shoes of Georgian men and women.
All Badger's Velvet jewellery is unique made using vintage pieces sourced acround the world then remodelled by our Oxford goldsmith or London silversmith creating beautiful contemporary pieces.
