During the reign of Queen Victoria there were many jewelry styles that were revived — Gothic, Ancient Greece and Roman gold working techniques, Egyptian scarabs, and many more. Queen Victoria created a strict etiquette for daytime and evening wear along with what gemstones could be worn to court such as diamonds could only be worn during the evening by a married woman. With a rise in the interest of the High Church, jewelry that harkened back to the ornate cathedrals was being made. This new NEC antique cross necklace is of that era. She is Amethyst glass that has been repaired set in Sterling Silver setting with a Marcasite center. She is joined by Art Deco vintage glass and Hematite (for harmonizing mind, body and spirit) on Sterling chain and findings.
