Pair of Dark Blue Stone Buckles


Dark Blue These buckles are set with a dark blue stone but the bow is set with clear stones within the knot lies a large dark blue stone. The very wealthy showed their wealth in numerous ways. One was in the details of the garments they wore. These are identical reproductions of an extant pair in a private collection but are made of an alloy that wont tarnish and set with paste. These will accommodate a strap of 1 1/4" with an overall size of 2" by 2 1/4". They are fashionable for 1750s to 1780s wear.

An example from London's Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1780 a trial for theft includes a woman who "was indicted for stealing . . .  a pair of stuff shoes, value 2 s. and a pair of stone buckles; value 2 s."
