Victorian Children's Jewelry
Vintage children's jewelry can be seen in many of the old photographs. Coral beads, silver lockets, bead necklaces and little bracelets all seem to have been popular in the Victorian era. Coral was thought to ward off ill health so even babies worn small beaded necklaces and bracelets of coral. "Baby" was embossed or engraved on tiny pins and bracelets, and jewelry with compartments for a treasured photo of a baby or child was also popular. Many vintage jewelry catalogues offered these pieces.

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 and research 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.
