Press release from: chiltonsantiques

Queen Victoria reigned over Great Britain from 1836 to 1901 and it is often believed that it was her love and affection for her husband and children that inspired the romantic and sentimental era of Victorian jewellery. It was a time of hugely contrasting classes, social responsibility and dictating etiquette and manners which was reflected in the era’s jewellery production.

Queen Victoria, and therefore Victorian jewellery, popularized mourning jewellery, jewellery that signified a social status and jewellery that signified emotions during a time stifled love and strict courtship rules. Some of the most popular pieces of Victorian jewellery include:

Forget Me Not Rings: identifiable by two hands holding a flower or heart these Victorian inspired rings were traditionally given my husbands or boyfriends to their beloved in order to keep them in their thoughts.

DEAREST Rings: Diamonds, Emeralds, Amethysts, Rubies, Emeralds, Sapphires and Topaz make up the name and the design of a DEAREST ring. DEAREST rings were popular during the romantic Victorian era as the offered a unique alternative to other types of Victorian jewellery and used many precious stones.

Snake Head Rings: Victorian society believed strongly in the romanticism of the snake and no-one was more responsible for this popularization than Queen Victoria herself who had two snake head rings made – one as an engagement ring and one as a wedding ring. The image of a snake’s tail held in its mouth is meant to represent the external cycle of life and eternal love.

Mourning Jewellery: The death of Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert saw a rise in the adornment of mourning jewellery, which was worn to signify either a sad or happy event. After the Prince’s death Queen Victoria would only receive visitors who wore mourning jewellery that reflected a true sense of grief or loss. Victorian mourning jewellery can be quite elaborate and many pieces include images of lost ones and locks of hair.

Where to Get a Good Jewellery Valuation
I just recently inherited some jewellery and needed to get a jewellery valuation for insurance purposes. I had never been through this process and was overwhelmed by the many jewellery valuators in Sydney. I wanted someone who was good, had a great understanding of jewellery and would give me an honest appraisal of my jewellery. I asked around and heard multiple friends mention Chilton’s Antiques in Bondi, although they are
Vintage costume jewellery
Nothing livens up an outfit more than a piece (or pieces) of vintage costume jewellery which I found out when I wondered into Chilton’s Antiques at Bondi (they’re also located in Miranda) and walked out with costume jewellery from a bygone era. I felt like I had stepped back in time to the early twentieth century with my new vintage necklace and earrings, and I was reminded of my childhood
