Story

The early years of the Victoria period were known as the Romantic era from around 1840-1850. It was a time of sentiment and meaning within jewelry often employing motifs inspired by nature. Next came the Grand Period with themes more akin to revival inspirations such as Greek or Gothic motifs (1850-1870).

Here we have a 15k yellow gold brooch surrounded by a chased cuir roulé frame centered on a large natural aquamarine. Below the central gem is a stylized wing shapes embellished with flowing engraving. Additional aquamarines appoint the apex and bottom of the gold brooch with that ethereal pastel color. If desired, the brooch could easily be converted to a pendant.

Date: Circa 1850.
