    About Victorian jewelry

    Victorian jewelry is dated from 1837 to 1901. The era’s name was inherited from Queen Victoria who reigned during that time. Her significant input shaped the jewelry style of that time. 

    To navigate in such a vast period, historians divide it into following parts:

    • The Early Victorian or Romantic 
    • The Middle of Grand Victorian 
    • The Late or Aesthetic Victorian Era 

    Different materials, gemstones and technics belong specifically for each era. Some styles though remained in favor longer than during one period. For instance, hair jewelry made its way from the Romantic through the Grand period. Snake and animal motifs were also in demand throughout the era.

    • Early Victorian jewelry

    As to the Queen influence, Romantic Period jewelry had well pronounced sentimental vibes. It was the time when young Queen Victoria was in love with her husband, Prince Albert. And the whole nation admired their relationship. Cameos, matching brooches, miniature portraits and lockets reflected the likeness of loved ones. After Albert’s passing in 1861, the Early Victorian Period ended, and The Grand era began.

    • Grand Victorian jewelry

    After the incandescent bulb invention in 1870s, diamond jewelry started thriving like never before. Diamonds, being placed under the electric light, revealed their dazzling nature and looked truly fascinating. 

    Besides Victorian diamond jewelry, mourning jewelry massively gained its popularity, reflecting the Queen grieving state after Albert’s passing. 

     Opulence and larger scale prevailed in the Grand Victorian jewels style. It was the time of booming economy, and makers picked up the trend.

    • Late Victorian 

    The Late Victorian jewelry makers stepped away from creating massive, heavy pieces. Women lifestyle changed towards independency. They got involved in new activities such as bicycling and tennis. To keep up with the new clientele’s needs, Late Victorian pieces were lighter and more wearable. Attached safety pins became very handy and this element is the era’s design feature.

    Tiffany & Co. introduced their first solitaire diamond engagement ring during the Late Victorian time. Etruscan and Egyptian revival, along with the Oriental motifs kept being popular. Another typical style for the period was a choker necklace. 

    The Aesthetic period and the whole Victorian era ended with the Queen Victoria’s passing in 1901.
