Named after Queen Victoria who is one of the most important people in the history of jewelry. The Victorian era featured lots of black and white. Think yellow metal, white diamonds, and black stones, in addition to agates, turquoise and synthetic colored stones, pearls, turquoise, and coral. Victoria famously wore black for 10 years after her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha died. This created what we know as ‘mourning jewelry’. Snakes were hugely popular and contrary to the popular view on snakes, they were viewed as a good luck signal. Sub-eras of the Victorian era are known as romantic, grand, and aesthetic. Other motifs included flowers, insects, bugs, hearts, lockets, and crescent shapes.
