Sterling Silver Intaglio Cuff
One of my all time favorite collections that my husband Sean and I have grown over the years are French intaglio wax seals dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. The history behind the seals and the meanings continue to fascinate me. We have taken impressions from the original seals in wax and have cast them in sterling silver. The pendants are approximately 1/2 inches. Each intaglio sterling silver cuff bangle bracelet is hand cast and unique, no two are alike.
Love & Truth - The meaning, of course, is one can not survive without the other. Love and truth go hand in hand and will survive as long as they have each other.
God Give Us - is seal states 'god gives us', and underneath is a cornucopia or horn of plenty, filled to overflowing. The message being 'God gives us plenty.'
Bee Silent - depicts a honeybee with the word "silent" beneath. In Victorian times, this sender would use this seal to indicate the recipient's discretion or silence on a matter was requested. It can also be seen as reminder to use wisdom on determining when to speak and when to be silent.
The cuff fits wrists between 7 and 7 1/2 inches and is sterling silver.
