The Victorian period is named after Queen Victoria of England, whose reign lasted over 6 decades from 1837 to 1901. Victorian jewelry styles generally reflect the Queen’s taste as it changed over her lifetime. Significant diamond and gold discoveries were made at this time, lowering prices so that fine jewelry was available to the growing middle class. Georgian jewelry will be categorically indexed with the Victorian period, due to its overall sparsity and temporal proximity to the Victorian era.
