Alexandrina Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India, the second longest serving British monarch, is a woman so well-loved and regarded that she created a whole fashion movement all on her own. Many attribute the tradition of brides wearing white on their wedding day to this fashionable sovereign.
During her rule, a middle class began to emerge, sparking a demand for jewellery for the mass market. Jewels that paid homage to the ornate, decorated and rich style that the Queen herself worn, first in rich luxurious colourful jewels and later in life, after the death of her beloved Albert, in all black.
What however is little known is that the Queen was not called Victoria at all but the affectionate Drina. It was only upon her coronation that she became known as Victoria.
The Queen’s Cuff is a tribute to this well-loved monarch. A central embellished crystal component has pride of place in the middle of the cuff - sparkling and gleaming in the light. Embellished little cabochons and embellished are woven into the strap to edge the central component. The strap features two rows of sparkling precious metal plated fire polished beads
