Queen Victoria had a particular fondness for Ireland and during her reign made four separate visits. She was warmly received and wrote in her diary of the cheering crowds that came to meet her. The penny coins used in our jewelry date from the latter days of the reign of Victoria, with some dating as early as 1890.
Legend card: "In for a penny, in for a pound!" Our striking British penny necklace features a classic bronze pence coin originally minted during the late Victorian Age. One side of the coin features a crowned bust of Queen Victoria wearing a widows' veil in memory of her beloved Prince Albert. The reverse side showcases the striking figure of Britannia - the female personification of Great Britain heroically regimented in a Corinthian helmet, flowing robes, a shield bearing the Union Jack, and a trident.
Surrounded by ornate Connemara marble beads, this pence bracelet pays loving homage to our Victorian origins. Slip it on and carry a bit of Britannia with you wherever you go.
