Victorian Jewellery Trends The Queen Started
In celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday coming up May 24th, we are highlighting some of the trends the Queen started. She was a cutting edge, fashionable trend-setter in jewellery and design in the Victorian era.
The Queen and the Victorians were enamoured with the romantic, magical and the spiritual. Jewellery items were adorned conveying grief and glee and the endearing.
The crescent moon and stars became common symbols in jewellery during this era. The crescent moon represented spiritual being and the feminine Moon Goddess and stars were a symbol of direction and guidance.
