Words simply cannot express how wonderful this piece is, an antique Diamond Chick bangle hailing from the late Victorian era.

Such a rare piece to find, these little chicks were most often found on brooches or converted from brooches to pendants.

This charming antique bangle features a rose cut diamond studded baby chick, freshly hatched from his white enamel egg with a ruby eye and two cultured pearls at either end which are his unhatched siblings.

It is beyond adorable and to find a piece like this as a bangle is an absolute delight.

The bangle is made from the highly sought after 12ct gold and is an expandable bangle with a slender gold wire joined at the centre back.

Perhaps this was originally an Easter gift for someone special but the hatching chick motif also holds a great deal of symbolism and the Victorians were well known for their symbolic jewels, traditionally the chick or hatching chick symbolises new beginnings and the start of a new chapter, bringing food fortune in new ventures.
