Queen Victoria’s bracelet is “composed of five square foliage-pattern sections, partly pave-set, the larger brilliants in open-back collets; with later extension.”1

The bracelet was probably delivered to Queen Victoria in 1838 if it is the “bracelet band of 5 rows” mentioned in the records. It was part of several pieces she had made from inherited jewels. The bracelet was designed as an heirloom of the crown.

Queen Victoria wore the bracelet in the official portrait for her Golden Jubilee portrait, together with the coronation necklace and earrings. She also wore them for the wedding of the future King George V and Queen Mary. Queen Alexandra (born of Denmark) wore the bracelet for her coronation in 1902.

The bracelet passed from Queen Mary to Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) and then to Queen Elizabeth II in 2002.
