Trends We Love: Victorian Jewelry

Victorian Diamond Earrings at Fourtane circa 1860

The era of Victorian jewelry spans between 1840-1901 and is named after the beloved British ruler Queen Victoria. It was her influence, much like that of Princess Diana in recent years that spawned a wide range of styles in jewelry and fashion.

Jewelry from this period is divided into three distinct periods: Romantic, Grand and Aesthetic, which reflects the themes and motifs deeply rooted in the past.
