Antique Jewellery - Gallery #1

Ahh, blame it on Downton Abbey again, as I've now become distracted with the jewellery of the Edwardian era (and earlier). I wonder if the popularity of the ITV series will see a resurgence of antique jewellery and fashions in the retail sector. One can only hope! I recall during my teen years, Victorian fashion was all the rage and I could walk into almost any store and find blouses of lace that took me back in time!

I found this choker (similar to the one worn by Lady Mary) advertised with the droll description "Victorian Regency Civil War Edwardian Choker" - covering all their bases I see! The reproduction necklace sells for $24 on auctiondose.com.
