I recently acquired this bangle. I just love Victorian jewellery and this bangle caught my eye. I bought it as 18 ct gold but when I acid tested it it tested as 14 or higher so I presume it is 15ct which would be in keeping with the time. I tested the stones and they did test as diamonds. There are 16 rose cut diamonds in total with a group of them on a stem forming the centre piece which is in the form of a flower. Underneath the flower is a small cresent moon. The Victorians had many symbols in their jewellery the cresent meanings included female spirituality, moon goddess and glory, the moon represents death and rebirth.
Many thanks for looking
