treasures: victorian ware jewels in the crown - gold earring set
"Very few people see a woman who uses jewelry correctly," the British writer Mrs Haweis wrote in 1889 . ".
"She was either dazzled, wearing a glow as big as a pigeon egg, or going to the other extreme and not wearing anything, and it looked as if she had been disturbed by a thief in the toilet, or was robbed by creditors before dinner.
The Victorian people loved their jewelry.
They also like to tell people how and when to wear it.
There are plenty of notes in Victorian books and magazines.
Mrs. Walker's female beauty (1837)
"On the promenade or carriage, dress jewelry is not suitable," she wrote . ".
This dance dress is another matter.
"All the resources of the toilet must be spent on it.
There is no need for any gorgeous embroidery or gold or silver. There are pearls, diamonds and other jewelry here.
"By the end of 1800, the magazines had begun to praise those who did not wear jewelry.
On 1886, a young lady named Lucilla timidly wrote to the female Finance Department asking if wearing jewelry was vulgar.
You can see her point.
The Victorian jewels reflect the tastes and customs of the time, and some look vulgar.
The shape is exquisite and the decoration is excessive. To be frank, some materials are very strange.
Nowadays, most people are a little disgusted with the idea of wearing jewelry woven by the hair of the dead.
People in the Victorian era found it very symbolic.
Victorian jewelry is considered unattractive and out of date.
Now it's back in fashion.
"People are starting to see the quality of these pieces," said Garret Weldon, a professional dealer in antique jewelry . ".
"I think people will recognize it even if the quality is not their unique style.
Many of Victoria's jewels were inspired by wildlife: animals, birds, plants, insects and reptiles, especially snakes.
Queen Victoria popularized snake jewelry.
She wore a snake bracelet on the first council, and her engagement ring was a golden snake with green stones.
This snake is of great significance to many cultures.
In this case, it is understood as a symbol of eternal love.
There are more snakes next.
A heart pierced or surrounded by an arrow, swallowing its own tail, about to swallow a bird, made of gold or jet or ivory, a bracelet of necklaces, rings, bracelets, or multiple coils.
These are worn on long gloves, and the head of the snake lies on the wrist and reaches out its arm.
"Necklaces are the most popular, usually in boxes," Weldon said . ".
They have a lovely fish.
The tail is like running water, the body is tapered, the tail will be stuck in the mouth.

Another popular inspiration for Victorian jewelry is archaeology, especially after digging the tomb of Etruscan outside Rome in early 1800.

"The most beautiful example is complicated --
Gold earrings and necklaces, in the form of various mythical creatures such as harpies, mermaid and gorgons, have rows of pendants.
"Sometimes the golden surface is covered with tiny golden particles.
In the 19 th century, jewelers were unable to figure out how this was done.
Italian jeweler Fortunato Pio Castellani, who observed the excavation of the tomb, presented himself with the challenge of restoring the lost technology of the ancient jeweler.
After extensive search, he found a farmer's jewelry made in a remote part of the Yalong mountains.
Although considered lacking in design and style, it still uses the old techniques.
The workers were transported to Rome for training in making imitation Etruscan jewelry.
Many other Victorian jewellers imitate this style, which has become a short-lived one. lived craze.
Etruscan Revival jewelry is more than a decoration.
There is also a teaching element.
Margaret Flower wrote in Victoria jewelry: "These precise replicas from the ancient world have had a huge impact on Victorian women, who are serious about improving themselves . " (1951).
She believes that the accuracy of such decorations is as pleasant as their beauty.
The real Castellani jewelry is very rare and valuable.
