Information: The Victorian era spanned the time of Queen Victoria’s rule of England from 1837 until 1901. During this time, a middle class began to emerge, sparking a demand for jewellery.
Queen Victoria herself was a major proponent of wearing cameos. They became so popular that they would become mass-produced by the second half of the 19th century. The most common cameos were white on black, white on blue and white on red brown.
