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.
With 14k tops, textured details set these sweet earrings apart. Likely components from a larger piece, I am so much a fan of these earrings with their classic victorian whimsey; acorns were much beloved by the aesthetic movement that focused on the beauty of nature and rebirth in mundane, often organic themes.
