A goldsmith in London created an openwork mustard pot with fine piercing in 1770. Little did he know his design would inspire this gorgeous Neville Cuff Sterling Silver Bracelet, still very much at home in the 21st century. This statement piece looks great dressed up or down and makes a wonderful gift.

A sterling silver mustard pot in our collection provided the design for this bracelet. The mustard pot was made in London by John Neville and is marked with the date 1770/71. Typical of 18th-century mustard pots, the antique container is a cylindrical cup made of blue glass and supported by a decorative sterling frame. The openwork and fluid curves in the frame panels are characteristic of the rococo style, which dominated the decorative arts of the mid- to late-18th century.

The design of this bracelet makes it so special. The open work keeps the bracelet from becoming heavy. Also it is just malleable enough to gently squeeze and adjust the size to your arm. I’ve been wearing it every day and I absolutely love it.
My husband got this cuff for me years ago and I still get compliments. It's truly one of a kind. I never take it off. It goes with everything and I love telling people what it is designed after - gives a bit of history!
