We knew we loved Queen Victoria when we read she once said, “The important thing is not what they think of me, but what I think of them.” Yes, queen. 

Even more of a reason to love Vikki is how she influenced the fashion world, particularly in the accessories department. Girl loved her jewelry, and she had exquisite taste. One of her favorite gemstones was turquoise. When she married Prince Albert, she gifted her twelve bridesmaids a pretty impressive brooch. The brooches were in the shape of birds, completely covered in cabochon turquoise stones, with diamond beaks. Turquoise represents love, while diamonds symbolize eternity so the combination of the two were pretty perfect for a wedding souvenir. 

After Prince Albert’s death, Queen Victoria went into mourning and so did her jewelry box. Black enamel set onto memorial rings were a standard. This ring pulls all of Queen Victoria’s favorite elements into one: turquoise, diamonds, and black enamel. A ring that is quintessentially Victorian, and really really rad.
