Have you noticed yellow gold making an enormous comeback? We certainly have had more and more customers requesting yellow gold anything and everything! In fact, more and more of our customers are dropping the fear of mixing yellow gold while wearing white gold or platinum.
There is also renewed interest in Early Victorian jewelry, like this bracelet, circa 1850. Victorian jewelry is most associated with the dark, somber Mourning Jewelry that Victoria adopted after the death of her husband Albert in 1861. However, Victoria’s 64-year reign encompassed several aesthetic phases in both fashion and jewelry.
The Early Victorian Era, 1837- 1860, has been dubbed the “Romantic Period”, and encompasses Victoria’s coronation at the young age of 18, her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. This period was a time of marital bliss for the royals, and the jewelry of the day consisted of intricate pieces full of romantic symbolism.
We refer to these lovely pieces as legacy pieces, one of a kind items that have survived the ages. This bangle made of 14kt gold with canntelli, a style of wire wrapping in an intricate buckle design. Drawing your eye to the center of the buckle bangle are 3 rose cut diamonds with a background of enamel. True to the victorian period, the bangle also features a tiny pop of color from the seed turquoise on the right side of the buckle.
Keep it Pretty!
