PORTRAIT JEWELRY
 

 
VICTORIAN MINIATURE PORTRAITS

Hand painted miniature portraits were the predecessors of photography. In an age when no other means of preserving a likeness was available, a hand painted portrait was a treasure and a legacy passed from generation to generation. Painting surfaces for these miniature works of art varied from porcelain and celluloid to ivory. Some portrait miniatures were done of famous "beauties" of the era, others were of classic style beauties rather than a particular real person.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
