The Victorian era saw epic romances,great tragedies and growing prosperity. The jewels of the period reflected these changes and are divided into the Romantic,the Grand and the Aesthetic.
The supply of gold was limited and so many pieces were light and open and often made from rolled gold, sheet plate and engraved or chased. Pieces were soldered at the back and jewels were decorated with stones and often natural materials such as pearls and shell.
Sentimental themes were the order of the day and jewels were given as love tokens, brooches and lockets, love knots, clasped hands, love birds and serpents were popular and held hidden messages.
Hi and thank you for looking at my listing.
I am a qualified member of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, gemstones and jewellery has been my passion and hobby for many years now.
I collect the unusual and rare, not necessarily expensive, I like the history and craftsmanship and skill in antique and vintage pieces and of course anything with a good sparkle! Jewellery reflects the design of each decade, style and different cultures or countries and I love thingsthat tell a story. I like to imagine where that piece of jewellery has been worn and by who.
