Victorian

The end of Georgian jewelry came with the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1837. Just 18 when she took the throne, over the next 64 years she became known for both her sense of fashion and for being beloved by her subjects.

While Victorian England calls to mind images of frail, fainting women, stern men and traditional values, it was an energetic time, rife with cultural change. Snakes, cameos, emeralds and birthstone based engagement rings came into vogue as did many exotic gemstones as trade further flourished. The Museum's victorian jewelry collection reflects the creative energy from 1837 through 1901.

Of special note:
  The prominence of filigree jewelry.
  Once exotic gemstones such as amethyst, lapis, onyx and topaz joining recurring favorites like garnet and pearl.
  Sophisticated drop and dangle earrings and French or European backs replace simpler post styles.

Favorites: victorian earrings (24k gold vermeil | 14k solid gold | sterling silver), victorian necklaces, victorian decor.
