Say it With Flowers: Victorian Jewelry’s Secret Language
Speaker: Jan Krulick-Belin
Flowers, plants, and leaves have been a source of inspiration for jewelry makers for more than two millennia. Their beauty and delicacy have long been captured in precious metals, enamels, and colored gemstones. During the Victorian era, however, the latest developments in the fields of science, botany, literature, and art converged with the effects of globalization, industrialization, colonization, Romanticism, and the Suffragette movement to bring new meanings to floral decoration. From sentimentality to sexuality, 19th-century floral jewelry became encoded with its own special language.
