Queen Victoria’s style was undoubtedly influential on the fashions of her country and ultimately led to three distinct jewelry trends emerging from the era. The first of these three styles was the Romantic period. The Romantic period was impacted by the Georgian period, which preceded it. The second period was the Grand period, which was primarily defined by mourning jewelry and the trends surrounding it. The final period was the Aesthetic period. The Aesthetic period was more lighthearted and airy than the previous periods and focused on aesthetic beauty and joy. This era features floral, natural, and feminine motifs, and utilized chased gold designs, enamel, and seed pearls. Signet rings have a long and regal history, with their earliest use dating back to Mesopotamia around 3500 B.C.E. Though the designs and motifs of signet rings have changed and evolved since that time period, their uses have stayed the same. Signet rings were used primarily as an identification mark for the powerful to safely seal important documents. For much of history, a wax seal was a more certain sign of validity than a signature. Oftentimes, signet rings were destroyed upon the death of the individual who possessed them so as to avoid fraudulent documents from appearing with their mark of approval. Still to this day signet rings are a sign of authenticity and power, making them an ideal addition to any antique collection. Seal Stamps occur in many different forms throughout history including Wax Seals, Pendants, and many other types of seals. Usually a flat surface would be engraved with a Seal, Crest or Initials for one to dip in ink or to be used as a wax seal. Chasing is a metalworking technique that uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns onto a metal surface. This process creates a design that is sunk into the front of the surface using indentations, grooves, and channels. Chasing is thousands of years old and was a very difficult and time-consuming technique that is still used by metalsmiths today.
