Outstanding Victorian Star-in-Crescent Necklace *include blue and yellow ribbon*
The Victorian era saw an explosion of symbolic and sentimental jewelry in popular culture around the world. During this period, magazines targeted at women began to gain popularity, with the idea of bringing the crown jewels into their own homes. Queen Victoria loved her jewels and had something for every occasion. Prior to this era, we primarily saw jewelry as menswear.
One symbol seen often in Victorian pieces is the crescent moon, meant to signify the changing of the seasons in one’s life. Stars, another Victorian motif, were a symbol of guidance, wisdom, and often adorned with diamonds.
