Beautifully Detailed Vintage Handmade Silver Spoon Bangle / Bracelet

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 and has the weight of true quality. The bracelet has a diameter of approx. 6.5cm 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 fully hallmarked (Makers mark William Gibson & John Lawrence Langman, Lion Passant, assayed in London in 1893)

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
