Beautifully Detailed Vintage Handmade Silver Spoon Bangle / Bracelet
RRP £75 grab yourself a bargain
This lovely bangle offers the opportunity to expand the historical story of spoon rings to co-ordinating jewellery. It has been hand crafted from a beautifully simple antique sterling silver pair of sugar tongs. The bracelet has a diameter of approx. 6cm but can be adjusted slightly to suit your requirements so please do let me know if you need a different size. The sugar tongs are hallmarked (Makers mark John and William F Deakin, Lion Passant, assayed in Sheffield in 1922)
It will come packaged with a hand made unbleached cotton bag featuring a hand painted little bird
Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding rings by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for "stealing a silver spoon". An expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas. When they arrived some of the servants are recorded as having met skillful prisoners who could create these beautiful rings and they would take yet another spoon from an officer or their new master to present their love with a precious token.
Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten
