SYMBOLISM IN VICTORIAN JEWELLERY: THE BUCKLE

The buckle motif has been popular through out jewelry history. It was popular during the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian periods.

Victorian life was filled with symbolism and jewelry was no exception. A buckle symbolized fidelity in love, romantic love, a bond that could not be broken, loyalty in friendship, and love of one’s family, all symbolized through the joining of the two pieces.

When the buckle wraps around a finger, like the serpent or snake, it can be interpreted as a symbol of eternal love (an unending circle or bond). The buckle is first and foremost a sentimental symbol and a love token, but it can also represent love in life or a love that has gone before but not forgotten. As such, it was also used to symbolize or mourn the loss of a loved one.
