Victorian Japonesque & Aesthetic Jewelry
 


Late Victorian Period
circa 1880-1901

"Aesthetic" is a term sometimes used in conjunction with the jewelry of late Victorian era. This period was inspired by simple naturalistic asymmetrical themes.... birds, leaves and sometimes Japanese-style elements like bamboo. It was a result of both the Japanese trade relations that had opened at mid-century and a corresponding trend toward a simpler more refined sense of design. Japonesque design motifs of this era include birds, bamboo, fans and scenes among other motifs.

Other favorite motifs of this era include crescents and stars; curb link bracelets with padlock fasteners; and sash pins, buckles and chatelaines that emphasized the fashionably small waists. Jewelry with a sports motif also became popular as women became interested in being more physically active.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
