When was the Victorian era?
The Victorian era was from 1837 until 1901. Queen Victoria was incredibly influential on the styles of fashion and jewellery during her reign. Prince Albert gave Queen Victoria an engagement ring in the form of a serpent or snake. This was set ruby eyes, diamonds and a large emerald being her birthstone. After Prince Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria only wore black, making not only this "fashionable" but also wearing mourning jewellery.
