Did you know that jewelers across England and Europe produced a kind of ‘secondary jewelry’ in order to satisfy the overwhelming demand for inexpensive adornment that arose during Queen Victoria reign (1837-1901)? And did you know that this trend was mainly inspired by the queen’s own liking for jewelry?
This secondary jewelry included all types of modern and wearable pieces of symbolic shapes (anchors, crosses, hands, hearts, horseshoes, stars, etc.) made of the more unsuspected materials: aluminium, iron, hair, papier-mache and even silver.
Many of Decimononic’s pieces have been inspired by this kind of jewelry and we look forward to following this path with you.
