The Victorian era took place from the year 1836 to the year 1901, which was the span of Queen Victorias reign. Queen Victorias style was undoubtedly influential on the fashions of her country and ultimately led to three distinct jewelry trends emerging from the era. The first of these three styles was the Romantic period. The Romantic period was impacted by the Georgian period, which preceded it.
The second period was the Grand period, which was primarily defined by mourning jewelry and the trends surrounding it. The final period was the Aesthetic period.
The Aesthetic period was more lighthearted and airy than the previous periods and focused on aesthetic beauty and joy. This era features floral, natural, and feminine motifs, and utilized chased gold designs, enamel, and seed pearls.The watch fob first became popular in the 1770s with the introduction of waistcoat pockets in mens clothing. Not only did the fob make it easier to remove the pocket watch and make it easier to handle securely, it was considered very fashionable around this time to have a watch fob hanging from each pocket, often seen with small personal seals and other decorative elements. In the Victorian era, it was wildly popular for women to braid locks of their hair and give them to their husbands as a human hair watch fob. With time jewelers started making chain-style fobs out of gold, silver or even platinum. Gold filled jewelry consists of an outer solid gold layer over a metal base, and 5% of its weight should be derived from gold. This solid layer of gold is laid over a base of sterling silver or some other kind of metal to produce a high-quality gold look.
