Dainty Mid 20th Century Mechanical Handcuffs Charm in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A darling, mid 20th century charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold as a very realistic pair of handcuffs. These functioning, miniature restraints are handmade and highly detailed— to open them, gently squeeze the the two-piece side, and pull the one-piece side away from it! We love these finely-made old charms, and like our favorite examples, this one has lots of symbolic potential. These cuffs are well suited to someone in law enforcement, or to someone in the BDSM community (remember your safe words!). Perhaps they represent being bound to someone metaphorically (in love), or else they might represent reclamation and breaking bonds! They are really cute and really cool, any way you look at them. Marked 14k for purity.
Without the jump ring, these handcuffs could also be used as a tiny, front-facing clasp, for those who love layering and creative applications in jewelry styling.
c. 1940 - 1950
Total length, including jump ring is approx 3/4"; each handcuff measures approx 11.6 x 12.3 mm.
