During the 19th century, Queen Victoria’s influence knew no bounds. Her style was observed and repeated through England and beyond, and her vast jewelry collection was no exception. She popularized an ancient stone and resurrected its widespread love once again, all because of her own personal preferences. 

One of Queen Victoria’s favorite gemstones was turquoise. Her beloved Prince Albert designed a historical set of four jewels for his wife that all featured the brightly hued stone. She gifted each of her ladies in waiting portrait rings haloed with turquoise. Her wedding day maidens all received brooches decorated with turquoise birds. 

The use of turquoise in Victorian jewelry skyrocketed each time Queen Victoria was seen wearing a new turquoise piece. It was quickly established as a standard in Victorian jewelry, which resulted in beautiful pieces such as this antique Robin’s Egg Ring. A large cabochon turquoise with a buttery smooth face pulls a gorgeous resilient color. Framed by a twisted, textured oval of gold, this balanced blue beauty makes us grateful for such a powerful stone.
