Story

Jewelry from the Victorian Era included not only designs and styles unique to those times but also included a number of revivals and influences from previous decades, centuries and even millennia. A good illustration is that of Gothic Revival. With so few examples of jewelry from the Middle Ages, jewelers incorporated design characteristics takes directly from the medieval architecture of that period.

Decidedly structural, this French cruciform pendant of 18k yellow gold personifies details such as its solid and open work tracery which is a direct translation of the pattern of interlacing ribs that typically appointed windows and door. The ends of the cross, formed in an ogive or roundly tapered arch configuration terminate with tricorn finials Even the design of the bale is taken from the triple lancet fan form found in the principles of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture.

Date: Circa 1860.
