VICTORIAN SILVER JEWELLERY. It was only from the 1880s that the jewellery production houses started to produce silver jewellery in quantity. Items such as bracelets, brooches, earrings, sovereign & vesta cases, watch chains, collars & lockets, etc. became common place, especially for day wear. In keeping with the romantic Victorian age, lockets were highly sought after to hold a lock of hair or miniature portraiture of a loved one. Visit us at www.klepners.com.au

Mourning Jewelry: The unexpected death of Victoria's husband Albert in 1861 sent her, and her entire nation, into mourning. Consequently, jewelry of black enamel, jet and onyx was in high demand during the latter part of the century.
