Victorian Old Mine Cut Diamond Earrings
Victorian oldmine cut diamond earrings 14kt gold
The Victorian era, has been divided in three main parts. These dainty earrings are made near the end of the Victorian era. Stylistically, jewelry of this time period did not resemble its earlier Victorian counterparts, in fact the jewelry was the complete opposite of what was worn before. After a long period of mourning, Queen Elizabeth gradually altered her 'dark' wardrobe, mourning jewelry, heavy brooches and large necklaces. She started to accept the fact that the future of the nation was in her hands and she had to rule the nation now without her beloved husband by her side.
The dark skies were parting and fashion was changing. There was also a major shift in industry. While in the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign the focus was on manufacturing, toward the later years there was a renewed interest and appreciation of the handmade. Jewelry became smaller, lighter and more dainty. Women still layered pieces, though, and favored smaller scatter pins. Jewelry also became an evening accessory and not so visible during the day.
These elegant gold and silver Victorian diamond earrings are perfect for day and night. They just fall below the earlobe and designed to attract just the right amount of attention! These earrings would be perfect for a bride... they are light, romantic, and could be the 'Something old' which stands for continuity!
