The garter has been used in jewelry as a symbol of mourning and romance since the early nineteenth century, as it holds the memory of a loved one close. Much like the serpent, it represents eternity, fidelity, loyalty, strength and protection. The symbol curves around and threads back into itself, creating an eternal loop. This 14k yellow and rose gold cuff is even adorned with rose gold forget-me-nots done in the repoussé decorative technique, which are a symbol of true undying love.
Metal: 14k yellow and rose gold, acid tested
