PRLog - April 19, 2012 - GARDENA, Calif. -- Jewelry gifts of fashion and sentiment are especially thoughtful for Mother’s Day when love is remembered and expressed in many different ways. At Sweet Romance, Victorian era ‘bits and bobs’ style jewelry has inspired designs which appear to reuse or repurpose small items or trinkets to create an all-new composition. In Victorian times, loose and broken charms, beads, lockets and chain elements were often reassembled by fashion-forward young women into personalized sentimental necklaces.
Collected Treasures Remember Love Bangles
Designer Shelley Cooper created the dramatic “Remember Love Locket Necklace” using figaro twist chain transitioning to rope rings, filigree beads and watch chain slides set with crystal. The chain is stationed with crystal set balls and double-sided Victorian disks engraved with miniature starbursts. A petite bird in flight and a tiny skeleton key swing above a Florentine-engraved, two-photo locket mounted with vintage filigree, seed pearls and enamel.
Love continues to bloom with the “Remember Love Bangle Set,” a trio of bangle bracelets which offer a different take on the typical charm bracelet. They may be worn together or one at a time representing the themes of “Love,” “Luck,” and “Romance.”
