Victorian Children’s Jewelry


Vintage children’s jewelry can be seen in many of the old photographs.
Coral beads, silver lockets, bead necklaces and little bracelets all
seem to have been popular in the Victorian era. Coral was thought to
ward off ill health so even babies worn small beaded necklaces and
bracelets of coral. "Baby" was embossed or engraved on tiny pins and
bracelets, and jewelry with compartments for a treasured photo of a baby
or child was also popular. Many vintage jewelry catalogues offered these
pieces.
