About The Victorian Period

1837-1901
The Victorian period represents one of the most important and creative periods in the history of jewelry style and design. Named for Queen Victoria, who ruled Britain from 1837 until her death in 1901, the era was one of prosperity, romanticism and sentimentality, themes that translated to the jewelry designs of the day. Victorian jewelry encompasses many different styles and aesthetics, from old mine diamonds collet-set in silver topped gold, to hand-chased gold and enamel jewels, to bold colored gemstones worn in fresh and creative ways.
