Interlaced Fret Design Sterling Silver Bracelet
Inspired by the fretwork architecture of many historic structures on Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg, this geometric bangle will polish any outfit with simple, elegant sophistication.
Colonial Williamsburg's DeWitt Wallace Collections and Conservation Building contains a small sampling of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century jewelry. The pieces are valued more for their beauty, or their historical associations, than their monetary worth. Precious and semiprecious stones - diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnets - were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today, as were gold and silver.
