Victorian Jewelry was produced during the reign of Englandís Queen Victoria. Arts & Crafts Jewelry was a design movement that began in the late 1800s as a rebellion against the mass-produced, machine-made designs. Jewelry was made to emphasize the craftsmanship rather than the intrinsic value of the components.
 
Art Nouveau  Was a flowing style with sinuous curves and naturalistic motifs.  Edwardian refers to the period during the reign of Edward VII of England. This period was characterized by delicate filigree in white gold and platinum, with diamonds and pearls predominating.  Delicate bows, swags, and garland effects were used in necklaces and brooches.  Both dog collars and long-fringed necklaces were popular.  The Art Deco era brought geometric styles characterized by zigzags and sharp angles.

Whitby Jet Jet is a type of highly mineralized wood, largely made up of carbon which imparts a rich black color. It's no longer wood, yet it is not quite petrified either, so it cannot be deemed stone. It is most closely related to coal. The beads in this necklace have a soft, beautiful glow and are very light-weight, c.1800 (late).
