The Acorn Bracelet and its Story

This vintage art nouveau bracelet has two larger links with acorns and acorn leafs. It is believed to have been the tree from which Jesus Christ's cross was made. In smaller pioneer cemeteries, it is common to place children's graves near oak trees. The oak tree was the tree of life in pre-Christian times. The Druids worshipped the oak. The oak, oak leaves and acorn can stand for power, authority or victory. Often seen on military tombs. This was probably worn by someone's loved one who passed and was a remembrance of them.
