Above are two Sterling Silver Victorian style Bracelets. The Turquoise Bracelet on the left is a fancy, fairly narrow Victorian filigree piece with floral sprays, silver grapes and cable design. This is a lovely silver bracelet that one would find themselves wearing more often then not. The above right photo displays a larger Bisbee Turquoise Victorian Bracelet with S shaped repose scroll embellishments on each side of a beautiful Bisbee Turquoise gemstone form the Bisbee Mine in Bisbee Arizona. Bisbee Turquoise is known to be some of the very best Turquoise that has ever came out of the earth, there are many Turquoise deposits in the American Southwest, however, Bisbee Turquoise has unusual character that the Native Americans as well as most other Turquoise connoisseur's cherish. This beautiful blue Turquoise set in this unusual silver work is very pleasing to the eyes when worn. These are some neat variations of our modern Victorian Turquoise Jewelry.
Above are two Victorian style Silver Rings, both made by John Hartman.
The ring on the left has high relief Victorian floral carved sculpturing along with beading and grape clusters. John starts by carving the wax and then casting it into silver, he then uses chasing tools to carve deeper into the silver which gives great dimension to his pieces. This Sugilite Victorian Ring is an outstanding piece of Victorian style Jewelry that is a conversational object of interest to everyone who sees it. The gemstone in the ring is an ultra rare natural Sugilite cabochon. You can check it out further by going to is presentation page. The Hartman's specialize in Sugilite Jewelry.
The ring on the right is equally unusual, it has a Colorado Highgrade Silver Ore stone and a black Onyx stone that are adorned with carved and deeply engraved silver feathered embellishments. Silver raindrops are scattered throughout to ad unique character. The ring shank of this ring is unique as well and pulls the whole Victorian affect together quite nicely - check it out on its presentation page.
Above is one of John's Victorian Ring Bands, we call this a boxwork cutout design and you can easily see why. This ring looks very nice on a finger and you can see the beautiful natural skin tone through all of the rectangular windows in the design, they are large enough that it has a great effect. The raised zigzag border design has another effect when it is worn that makes this a very charming Silver Ring Band - Check it out!
