Midsummer Night's Dream

Victorian star brooch with turquoises & pearls, Great Britain circa 1890

Celestial bodies were one of the most popular jewellery motifs of Victorian England. Whether crescents, suns or stars, they were all found on the décolletés and blouses of the ladies, executed in diamonds for the evening and in gold for the day. The present piece of jewellery in the shape of a star shows itself in the shine of shimmering natural pearls and fine cabochon-cut turquoises. They occupy the entire surface of the star. Both gemstones were favorites of the Victorian era and are found nestled in warm yellow gold. This colour combination was especially intended for the daytime wardrobe, and even today the star makes one dream of balmy summer nights at any time of year.
