Victorian Era 1837 to 1901
Due the length of the Victorian Era it is often divided into three distinct time
periods each with their own style of rings. Lasting for more than 60 years from
1837 until 1901 the era was named after Queen Victoria of Great Britain and was
divided up into the Early Victorian (Romantic), the Mid Victorian (Grand), and
the Late Victorian (Aesthetic). The Romantic Period style was a result of gold
being rare and the Queen dictating a strict etiquette for what gems to wear.
Methods such as piercing and engraving were used to give the illusion of mass
with minimal gold. The Grand Period started as a consequence of the death of
Victoria’s husband. Vintage rings of this period will have a more serious design
with darker stones. The last period, the Aesthetic Period, designs had a more
fun style and included dragons, moons, and stars in many designs.
