Apples of Gold has added a new collection of sterling silver vintage antique-style bangle cuff bracelets made in the late 1800s to early 1900s Victorian and Edwardian period styles. What makes these new cuff bangles different than the plethora of vintage-style bracelets in the jewelry market today is that these are not your average design reproductions created from images or imaginative concepts dreamed up by modern designers. What makes Apples of Gold’s antique-style bracelets unique is that they are made from actual original jewelry making hubs and tools that one of our craftsman discovered that jewelers of centuries’ past used to actually use to create new jewelry pieces at the time and sell them to 1800s and 1900s era shoppers!

In other words, we use the same hubs/molds/tools that craftsman of the time used to reproduce exact replicas of bracelets of the past!
While the hubs we found were not specifically dated, jewelry historians and craftsman agree that these hubs are most likely from the mid to late 1800s to early 1900s, which is the Victorian and Edwardian periods of history. Some bracelets and jewelry were made during those actual periods as contemporary pieces which were new designs at the time, and some were being made as vintage pieces of former periods during that time, so it is very hard to date with precision the exact period from which these bracelet originate, but we know that they are actual antique/contemporary hybrids that we create today as brand new jewelry pieces!

While the history contained is such pieces is valuable and rare, we price our collections based on today’s market, since we are selling them as new jewelry; as such prices from Apples of Gold are extraordinarily affordable and valuable, since we are not adding an intrinsic historical price tag to the pieces, as many jewelers would for such collections. Our goal is simple: to preserve historical jewelry in the antique and vintage line, while providing a value-based quality piece of jewelry, ring, pendant, or bracelet to our customers today.
