Victorian jewelry design was influenced by historical and cultural events as well as the technological innovations arising from the Industrial Revolution. The Queen’s coronation took place during the Romantic period, an era largely characterized by a fascination with a romanticized remembrance of the folkloric and chivalric Medieval and Gothic periods. Gothic and Renaissance motifs became popular in jewelry of the time.

Religion was an important part of Victorian life, and cross pendant necklaces made from materials such as metal, hair, and gemstones were common accessories. This stunning Bohemian garnet cross, for example, boasts class and confidence with its sharp leaf-like edges.
