*Fashioned from a victorian stick pin.

On her wedding day, Queen Victoria of Britain gave each of her Royal Bridesmaids a brooch depicting a bird encrusted in turquoise with ruby eyes and a diamond beak. 

The queen’s taste sparked a jewelry revolution that evolved into a style of its own. In the Victorian Era, the dove was both a religious symbol and a symbol of domesticity and the home. Turquoise is a stone widely found in Victorian jewelry for its beauty and relative affordability. This isn’t one of Victoria's brooches…but we promise not to tell if you want to pretend it is.
