Victorian jewelry is as complex in its symbolism, sentiment, and design as the fashion, architecture, and decor of the time. Worn as an ornament, a love token, or a remembrance, jewelry not only completed the well-dressed lady’s costume but also denoted her position in society, her marital status, and her sense of self. This revival piece is a precious sign of the times.
Sizable to say the least, this hefty amethyst cabochon sits amid a garland of pearls. Delicately claw prong set, wonderfully presented.
