Victorian Era Tidbits:
During the Victorian era women's 'jewellery' included cameos, gold or silver watches with fobs, worn in pocket at belt, or attached to left shoulder by fleur-de-lis or bow knot, large lockets on chains (usually heart-shaped), small lockets on short chains, dog collars studded with precious stones, pins of diamonds, brilliants or pearls used to secure high collars, narrow wedding bands, diamond solitaire engagement rings, link bracelets fastened by small heart-shaped padlocks, and bangle bracelets. Accessories included chatelaine bags, hand purses hooked onto belt, lorgnettes, muffs - usually flat, fur necklets, feather boas, 4-buttons gloves, card cases, buckled belts, sashes, small fans, folding wheel-shaped fans, long-handled umbrellas, usually tipped in gold or mother-of-pearl, small parasol with lace, long elaborate hat pins, and gold pens in mother-of-pearl holder. The look of demure prim gentility was emphasized by the loss of the great hats in 1835 for bonnets. Great hats had given a flirtatious air to clothes and their replacement by bonnets changed the whole character of day dresses. Lavishly trimmed bonnets stayed in fashion for half a century and weren't worn much after 1890.
