The jewellery created during Queen Victoria’s reign (1837-1901) were mostly inspired by a wish to convey sentiments and messages with every element, motif and choice of material having a symbolic meaning. After 1861 when Prince Albert’s passed away, there was a revival of mourning jewellery with the use of black jet & black glass with black enamel detail including Cameos, Micro mosaic jewellery and painted porcelain discs. It was during this time that sash pins also became popular and towards the latter end of this era the jewellery became more colourful with notible Art Nouveau influence.
