The Victorian era took place from the year 1836 to the year 1901, which was the span of Queen Victoria's reign. Queen Victoria's style was undoubtedly influential on the fashions of her country and ultimately led to three distinct jewelry trends emerging from the era. The first of these three styles was the Romantic period. The Romantic period was impacted by the Georgian period, which preceded it.
The second period was the Grand period, which was primarily defined by mourning jewelry and the trends surrounding it. The final period was the Aesthetic period. The Aesthetic period was more lighthearted and airy than the previous periods and focused on aesthetic beauty and joy. This era features floral, natural, and feminine motifs, and utilized chased gold designs, enamel, and seed pearls.This item is in the category "Collectibles\Kitchen & Home\Flatware, Knives & Cutlery\Single Flatware Pieces".
