Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description In Victorian England, the symbolism or magical powers of jewelry was of less concern than its aesthetic appeal. Jewelers created brooches that reflected the quickly changing fashions of the period. This brooch dazzles with its lavish use of diamonds and turquoise.
