VICTORIAN DIAMOND JEWELLERY
Inventive, innovative and revolutionary, Victorian jewellery saw developments both socially and creatively. While nature remained a favoured theme, the Romantic Movement encouraged the use of the floral and cascading designs. Contrasts between colours and materials became more prominent, and technological advancements meant machine-produced Victorian jewellery flooded the market. As the Victorian people became disenchanted with the poor quality of the mass produced jewellery, efforts were made to pull standards back to their original glory. New carat standards were brought in to effect and various revival styles, such as Etruscan, Egyptian and Greek were seen in jewellery. Our selection includes Victorian diamond jewellery in a range of styles, including brooches, pendants and rings, including both authentic period pieces and items inspired by the styles of the time.
