When Price Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria went into an intense period of mourning for her beloved husband; she was devastated writing "How I, who leant on him for all and everything—without whom I did nothing, moved not a finger, arranged not a print or photograph, didn't put on a gown or bonnet if he didn't approve it shall go on, to live, to move, to help myself in difficult moments?"

The Queen turned mourning into her chief concern and mourned for the next 40 years wearing black in her seclusion as well as on the rare instances she did make a public appearance. The world followed suit - jet, ebony and onyx set the tone in jewelry with the occasional addition of pearls and diamonds.

These black onyx kite-shaped earrings are most likely American and show that Queen Victoria had a worldwide following. Set in 14kt yellow gold with the original screw backs ensuring a secure fit, they are topped with a traditional trefoil design with a lovely scroll pattern below.

For centuries spinel was mistaken for ruby and gained undeserved fame. Some famous large rubies, such as the "Black Prince's Ruby" and the "Timur Ruby" in the British Crown Jewels are actually spinels. Today fine red spinel is more rare than ruby but less valuable.

These sweet faceted red spinel earrings are perfect for the holidays with the bright red centering a cluster of tiny pearls. The pearls add a brightness to any complexion and the facets on the spinel add the sparkle. Having said that, they will also look wonderful with the more casual attire of jeans and a tee shirt or even for a yoga workout.

Simple and infinitely wearable, these are suitable for any age.

It was not uncommon to find 19th century antique wedding rings made in a delicate design using turquoise, which symbolized the forget-me-not flower. This charming and delicate Victorian beauty was most likely just that. Six (6) cabouchon turquoise surrounding a faceted garnet and lovely scroll work on the shoulders. The underside contains a compartment that at one time was used to keep a tiny lock of hair from the one who gave this. The mystery of its earlier life brings magic to this ring and helps to keep it alive in the world of its next owner. As an engagement ring, an everyday ring or a wonderful gift to a loved one, this ring will continue its life for many years to come.

This pin is a case in point as the 4 point diamond star can be turned to reveal a second color of enamel underneath!! Blue with slight tinges of green changes to a fiery red and orange. Each diamond arm contains 5 rose cut diamonds. The central point of the pin contains an old European cut diamond weighing approximately 0.20 carat. The base of the pin is a double tiered open work cage and the pin retains its original C clasp.

Scroll and leaf design make up the delicate frame of the central stones topped with the pearl and suspended from a stylized lyre symbolizing not only the classicism of the overall design but also associated with historical splendor and opulent living.

The Victorians were well known to have their own language of flowers. In fact, during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837 - 1901) this knowledge was as important to people as being well dressed. The obvious interpretation of the rose is that of love, yet each color carried it's own specific meaning. Here this sweet spaniel offers a pink rose, symbolizing admiration as well as love and with his little uplifted paw as an additional gesture, well how could any girl refuse. He almost seems to be smiling at her while his eyes must nearly display the feelings of his master. This beautifully shaped pendant, which appears to have once been a locket, can be worn on a chain or a ribbon and is just the loveliest face on a dog that I have ever seen. I fell for it the minute I laid eyes on him!

Condition: Very good; minor surface scratches

The archaeological discoveries of the Roman and Etruscan sites in the mid 18th century, inspired a revival of the type of jewelry discovered, characterized by granulation, twisted gold wire and filigree techniques. This lovely necklace shows this influence in the wire-work gold beads used decoratively between the plain gold beads and the faceted amethysts. Beads are hollow and a few have minor dents hardly noticeable to the naked eye. Otherwise, condition is very good. Newer 14kt clasp. Just over 13" long; it is the perfect accent piece to wear with jeans and a tee or over a sweater. Circa 1890.

The Victorians loved the combination of garnets highlighted with the shimmer of diamonds and this beautiful bangle is an exceptional example. This alluring 18kt gold, almandine garnet and diamond bracelet is circa 1860 and probably French in origin. 1860,yet oh so modern! The garnets are cut "en cabouchon" with a criss-cross of old mine cut diamonds "tying" the stones. Very very sexy as it is reminiscent of the tying of a corset, right down to the little eyelets on the gold...oh la la! In excellent condition with a secure safety chain. Circa 1860
