Photographs from the Victorian era demonstrate how jewelry was worn, and how it related to the fashions of the time. Some pieces, like bar pins, were common accessories and can be found fairly easily today. Others, like full parures (sets of necklace, bracelet, brooch, earrings and sometimes ring) are much more difficult to obtain.

Whether a family heirloom or a recent find, Victorian jewelry continues to fascinate collectors and jewelry lovers alike. The sentiment, history, craftsmanship and whimsy lures new collectors and historians to this day. Everyday people treasured these wonderful echoes of the past, and we are fortunate that so many of them have been handed down to our generation to wear, protect and enjoy.

These ladies all share a piece of cross jewelry to accessorize their attire, and it is interesting to see how many various jewelry pieces can be fashioned using that motif.

One photo expert contacted me wondering if this CDV might have been a gift to U.S. Grant's wife, Julia, as the Ulke Brothers were well known as photographers of the politically famous in Washington DC, and 1872 was the beginning of Grant's 2nd term as President.
I would love to know who she is.

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.
