A Close Look at Victorian Jewelry

The reign of Queen Victoria encapsulates a quickly evolving period of history — and jewelry styles were no exception. No single period has seen such a diverse group of jewelry attributed to it than the Victorian era. Today, there is a vast collection of authentic antique Victorian jewelry and watches on 1stDibs.

Victorian jewelry is named after Queen Victoria, whose reign lasted from 1837 to 1901, making her the second longest-ruling monarch. (She was surpassed by Queen Elizabeth II in 2015.) During this time, different styles of fashion and jewelry came and went. Thanks to our fascination with royalty and swoon-worthy melodramas like Netflix’s The Crown — which is rife with evocative fashion, jewelry and interiors — and the 2017 feature film Victoria & Abdul, we are all familiar with her story. After the death of Victoria’s father and three childless uncles, she ascended to the throne at age 18. In 1840, Queen Victoria married the love of her life, her first cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Queen Victoria loved serpentine jewels, and she had even more power to shape trends than Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle do today. The British monarch’s best-known piece in this mold is the gold coiled-snake engagement ring she received from Prince Albert — the sinuous reptile was considered a symbol of everlasting love.

The Queen's 63-year reign has been divided by historians into the Romantic period, the early happy years, circa 1837–60; the Grand period, marked by the deaths of the Queen’s mother and husband, circa 1860–80; and the late Victorian or Aesthetic period, which lasted from about 1880 until 1901 and ushered in the Belle Époque. Queen Victoria wore her heart on her sleeve, and her fashion and jewelry reflected her emotions.

Romantic period jewelry, which featured common decorative motifs and was embellished with seed pearls, coral and turquoise, was a celebration of the young monarch’s love. Everything changed with the death of Prince Albert, and the Grand period is most often associated with mourning jewelry. Jewelry was smaller, lighter and more dainty during the late Victorian period. During this era, diamonds came into fashion, and semiprecious gems such as amethysts and opals became prevalent, too. Using gemstones for their natural beauty and not their worth was something that jewelers of the era felt passionate about, and this ideology would really become relevant in Art Nouveau jewelry.

Find a collection of authentic antique Victorian jewelry — from rings, necklaces and brooches to a range of other accessories — on 1stDibs. 

Questions About Victorian 15k Gold
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 1, 2024
    The term 14K gold, or 14-karat gold, refers to a type of gold alloy. The term alloy means a metal made of two or more base metals. In the case of 14-karat gold, 58.5% of the content is pure gold, and the remaining 41.5% is alloy metal. Due to the strength of the metal, many jewelry makers use 14-karat gold in their pieces. Find a wide variety of 14-karat gold jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 27, 2024
    The difference between 10K and 14K gold is how much of the metal's content is pure gold versus alloy metal. 14K gold is 58.3% pure gold and 41.7% alloy, while 10K gold is 41.7% pure gold and 58.3% alloy. Due to the increased amount of alloy metal, 10K gold tends to be stronger than 14K. On the other hand, the increased gold content of 14K gives the metal a richer color and a generally higher value. Explore a large collection of gold jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 21, 2024
    Yes, 12K gold is real, but that doesn't mean that the material is pure gold. 12K gold is actually an alloy that is 50% pure gold and 50% other metals. The resulting alloy is highly durable and resistant to scratching and fading. Its hardness makes it difficult to shape into rings, so most 12K gold jewelry consists of necklaces and earrings. On 1stDibs, explore a wide variety of gold jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Yes, 14k gold can be good for earrings. The precious metal is rich in color, making it an appealing choice for jewelry. It is also durable and reasonably priced compared to 18-karat gold. The biggest downside to 14-karat gold earrings is that they contain a larger percentage of base metals than 18-karat and may be more likely to cause sensitivity reactions in some people as a result. Explore a large selection of gold earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    Yes, 14-karat gold earrings can be good. One of the biggest benefits of 14-karat gold is that the base metal content provides added strength, helping earrings resist scratching and damage. The downside to 14-karat gold is that its color often isn't as rich as purer alloys like 18- and 22-karat gold. On 1stDibs, shop a large selection of gold earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 27, 2023
    Yes, 14K gold is okay for earrings. In fact, many people opt for earrings crafted out of 14-karat gold. This type of gold is 53.8% pure gold and 41.7% alloy. The high content of base metals makes 14-karat gold strong enough to resist scratches, so earrings made from the precious metal can hold up to the effects of daily wear. Shop a diverse assortment of 14-karat gold earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    Yes, 18-karat gold can be good for earrings. Because it is an alloy, 18-karat gold is more durable and scratch-resistant than pure 24-karat gold. You can find 18-karat gold in rich warm yellow, cooler white with warm undertones and light pink rose. On 1stDibs, explore a large collection of gold earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 1, 2024
    Yes, you can buy 24k gold jewelry. However, 24-karat gold is a much less commonly used material than 14-karat and 18-karat gold. As 100% pure gold, 24-karat gold tends to be softer and more susceptible to scratching and breakage, making alloys a more popular pick for jewelry makers to use when crafting pieces. Find a large collection of gold jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    The difference between 14K and 18K white gold stud earrings comes down to the content of the precious metal alloy. Stud earrings made of 14-karat white gold are 58.3% gold and 41.7% base metal, while 18-karat gold is 75% pure gold and 25% other metals. As a result, 14-karat white gold tends to be stronger and more resistant to scratching, and 18-karat gold will have a more noticeable warm-glowing yellow tinge. On 1stDibs, shop a range of white gold stud earrings.
