A reversible Greek revival 14 karat gold hand engraved bangle bracelet depicting a lyre and lily flowers on one side and a floral arrangement with architectural lines designs on the other. The lyre was a symbol of Apollo, the god of the arts. It is a sign of musical talent and wisdom. Derived from the Greek word "leiron," the lily was revered by the Greeks and was associated with rebirth and motherhood. Lilies are the May birth flower and the 30th wedding anniversary flower. Lilies often symbolize chastity and virtue, and when appearing at funerals, lilies symbolize the soul of the departed receiving restored innocence after death. This bracelet has a 5 5/8 (between 5 1/2 - 5 3/4) inch circumference, best fits petite wrists.
