Huge technological advances during the Victorian era also bore a notable influence on the styles and motifs celebrated in jewelry design, the techniques used to cut stones, and made new and more exotic gemstones and materials possible. Hence, the Victorian period was and remains one of the most exciting times in the history of jewelry design and making.
A popular gemstone theme in the Victorian era was 'acrostic' rings that would spell out 'dearest' or regards.' Perhaps this 1964 Victorian Revival band, featuring a protective amethyst and a calming pearl, is a beautiful take on that, as we know gemstones are timeless and precious in every way!
