This spectacular bog oak Victorian bracelet was made in the mourning period from 1861. The very dark brown/ebony coloured links are superbly hand-carved in depicts of  Irish shamrock's, English rose's and Scottish thistle's. Links are attached on a double cord elastic which is knotted at end, newly rethreaded and ready to wear.

Interesting Facts:
Bog oak was used to imitate jet in the Victorian mourningperiod. Like jet, bog oak is wood (actual oak, fir, pine or yew) that has been fossilized in peat marshes or bog so that it turns hard and black or very dark brown in color. It's also lightweight and warm to the touch, but it usually has a matte finish, as opposed to jet's gleaming polish.
