Would this work with a monochrome grosgrain band - with jeans? Sterling silver enamel over guillochÃ
(engine-turned) pattern. Length is 7 cm (2,7 in).

Didn't the pic work? It's really the only photo I have.

Edit: Photo fixed, I hope.

It's a ladies buckle(vintage), originally meant to be worn with a dress. That said, I don't think that it's substantial enough (too narrow) to work with jeans

Oh, I see - and thanks, I like it too, mainly for the workmanship. It's really quite sturdy, although Tomasso is of course right about it being a ladies' buckle. (Around 1910, judging from the hallmarks. I didn't want to tell about it being a ladies' one - but it seems that that one's too obvious.) Haven't decided about buying it yet - but if it's that obviously a ladies' one, I'm having second thoughts. Might just look odd.

Here's another one - I think this might not be any less feminine, but here goes (the silk belt is completely worn out and will have to be changed):
Now picture a leather strap on this - too effeminate?
