Romantic Victorian Jewelry, Antique painted miniature enameled pin diamond

Originally the term “Victorian jewelry” was designated for articles of jewelry made in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria, but not all of the many varieties produced during her long reign, 1837-1901, are now generally classified as Victorian jewelry. These days in the international antique jewelry trade the pieces now called Victorian jewelry are not necessarily made in the United Kingdom. The term “Victorian Jewelry” became a term used for European jewelry made in the 19th century rather then the description of a certain style-movement in a specific country.

  1. The term “Victorian” is applied to jewelry produced not only in Queen Victoria’s England,(although much was created there), which was made in Europe and America during the years of her reign from 1837 to her death in 1901.
