Jewellery carries a message

Two Antique Gold Memorial Brooches at Dupuis Auctions

Two Antique Gold Memorial Brooches at Dupuis Auctions

These antique jewels are the perfect representation of the dying days of the Victorian Empire. Beautifully made mourning jewels conveyed a message of good taste in fine craftsmanship, and remembered someone who can’t be with the wearer any longer. A poignant memory of an important era, and very wearable in todays fashion environment.
