19th-century jewelry consisted predominantly of adaptations of earlier jewelry styles. These jewels reflected time periods of national achievement and symbolized all that was great in the history of European civilization. One of the two major styles that emerged was the Gothic (or Medieval) Revival.
Gothic architecture, being restored throughout Paris at the time, was the model for Gothic jewelry being referred to as romantique. Gothic jewelry maintains the consistent dark black color of the Gothic style, with exaggerated shapes and dim tones, mostly with sharp angles.
This stunning example features that gothic feel with sharp ice cream cone-like graduated charms the beautifully dangle from flower garnets that boast what look like the sharpest, petals! The depth of color in these garnets makes this piece an overall amazing addition to any Gothic-themed collection.
