A Piece of History: Grand Victorian Gold Diamond Brooch

An exquisite representation of the Grand Victorian era, circa 1860, this enchanting brooch captures the spirit of the time with its nature-inspired floral motif. Crafted from 18K pink gold, the piece is set with an array of 64 meticulously faceted rose cut diamonds and senailles, radiating the era's adoration for lavish design. It's a testament to the period's skilled craftsmanship, reflective of a time when jewellery echoed the opulent tastes and the influence of Eastern aesthetics in the West. A poetic homage to the Victorian penchant for grandeur and ornamentation, this brooch is a collector's jewel that encapsulates history's allure.

Style
Victorian - Victorian decorative arts refers to the style of decorative arts during the Victorian era. The Victorian era is known for its eclectic revival and interpretation of historic styles and the introduction of cross-cultural influences from the middle east and Asia in furniture, fittings, and Interior decoration. Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a regrettable excess of ornament. The Arts and Crafts movement, the aesthetic movement, Anglo-Japanese style, and Art Nouveau style have their beginnings in the late Victorian era.

Style specifics
The Grand Victorian Period - Experts divide the reign of Queen Victoria, also called The Victorian era (1837 - 1901) into three periods of about twenty years each; The Romantic Victorian Period (1837 - 1860), The Grand Victorian Period (1860 - 1880), and the Late or Aesthetic Victorian Period (1880 - 1901).

We consider this to be of the Grand Victorian Period.

This second Victorian period is famous for its ostentatious pieces set with pearls and diamonds (from South Africa). From ca. 1850 wealthy English had reported about jewelry from India and Japan, which heavily inspired the jewelers of this period. This period also corresponds with the death of Queen Victoria's husband King Albert making mourning jewelry (set with heavy dark stones) the type of jewelry specific for this period.
