Gorgeous 9k Victorian Turquoise and Pearl Forget-Me-Not Ring
Victorian jewelry is as complex in its symbolism, sentiment, and design as the fashion, architecture, and decor of the time. Worn as an ornament, a love token, or a remembrance, jewelry not only completed the well-dressed lady’s costume but also denoted her position in society, her marital status, and her sense of self.
This example boasts the original locket back and delightful star shape around the 6 turquoise cabs.
