    Elisabethan
    (260 items)

    I bought an old book the other day, it´s a book from 1952 by a museum in Stockholm showing jewelry. I think these photos are very special. The photo from the left is from 1870's and the right one is from 1920.

    Don´t know what´s the right category for this post but the main thing about them are jewelry history.

      Extraordinary photos.
      Elisabethan would this jewellery have been passed on in families or were they put aside in a community just for weddings? There seems to be a huge amount of it!

      Thankyou so much Racer4four and PhilipDavidAlexandermorris for love and coments!

      The brides would borrow the jewelry from the church but the book sais that practice probably ended in the 1700's or beginning of 1800's (american write 1800 or 1900 I believe). The commons would stay with the tradition and they would borrow it from the wife of the priest or from av civilian person who had jewelry of this kind, sometimes they rented it and it would give that person an income. Not all of it would be fine jewelry, quite often it was not but made of other metalls. The bridecollar is a tradition from the nobless in the 1500-1600's (1600-1700 in english writing). To this day most churches here will have an old Crown that you can borrow for your wedding, I will post photos of that another day.Thanks for your aattention!

      Thankyou Val! Yes I am enjoy this book. Love to learn more about jewelry history. It tells you something about the time. Like the cross the left bride is varning, it's a 'striglakors' and that would keep bad spirits away, like 'trolls'. The dangling metall was said to scare them. So even if almost everyone attended church there was also superstition. With this darkness this time of year, the wilderness and just candel light, who can blame them ;).

      I ment to write 'that the left bride is wearing' not varning.....
