Jewelry | Earrings,Wedding Bands & Diamonds has a long history going back thousands of years but After the tremendous expansion of human knowledge, science and technology that happened by the end of Renaissance, jewelry received one of the largest expansions of style and influence during the reign of English Queen Victoria. Her pensionable love toward her husband, art and jewelry managed to sway traditions and change fashion styles several times during her long reign from 1837 to 1901. One of the largest contributors to the expansion of jewelry during those times can be found in the effects of Industrial Revolution, which enabled growth of the middle class that could afford to buy and use cheaper jewelry on daily basis. Great intake in production of industrially made jewelry (often produced from cheaper materials and gemstone substitutes) enabled faster adoption and quicker reaction to fashion changes. Higher class however did not stand idle, and demanded creation of more technically superior and artfully made jewelry items made from precious metals and popular gems (mostly diamonds).
Influence of Queen Victoria contributed to the three distinct fashion changes that had great impact on jewelry production in Europe and America.
That influence continues today with Kruckemeyer & Cohn Jewelry Company. With our custom designed jewelry & our line of Jewelry designers.
