The back of the terminus is engraved with the original owner's name  "E.A. Kimball."

One of the great features of a strap bracelet is that it fits any wrist size up to its maximum circumference,  just under 9" in this case.  For smaller wrists you just pull the strap through the rondel and the slide holds it snuggly to your wrist.

Flexible Victorian strap bracelet.

Finely made mesh bracelets present only one problem.  The feel and flexibility of the mesh can be mesmerizing.  These bracelets are as fun to play with off your wrist,  as they are to wear!

The middle Victorian era (1860  -  1880) was a golden age, literally.  Jewelers of the era took advantage of the gold discoveries in California (1849) and Australia (1851) and created beautiful,  intricate jewels in gold.  The strap bracelet shown here is one example.

Here are a few more examples of golden jewels from this era.
