The Middle Ages brought us a whole new level of bling. Queens in medieval Europe favored tiaras adorned with precious gemstones and pearls. They also flaunted massive, ornate crosses and pendants that showcased their devoutness.

One of the most famous pieces from this era is the Crown Jewels of England, with its dazzling diamonds and priceless gemstones. Even today, the British monarchy continues to use these jewels for royal ceremonies and coronations.

The Glamorous Georgian and Victorian Eras

The Georgian and Victorian eras marked a shift towards more intricate and ornate jewelry. Queens like Queen Victoria set the trend by wearing elaborate brooches, necklaces, and earrings made from materials such as jet, pearls, and coral.

In these times, sentimentality was a driving factor in jewelry design, with pieces often carrying hidden messages or incorporating the hair of loved ones. It was an era of sentiment and elegance, and these trends continue to influence jewelry design today.
