This bangle began life in London 1799 as a pair of long ice bucket tongs. The diameter of this bangle is 6.5cm, slip the hand through the bangle, if need be the bangle will unlock to allow the hand to pass through, simply slide one of the tong bowls over and it will unlock, once the bangle is on your wrist just slide the bowl back into the locked position.
