Glorious English Victorian Pink Topaz and Diamond Color Paste Collar
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 piece has a special story... I found this beauty in pieces, broken down by a previous owner for an easier sale, and I reassembled her from two bracelets, earrings, and a singular pendant, into her original form, with her original clasp!
