A bridesmaid’s gift that inspired an empire, and Happy 200th Birthday Charles Lewis Tiffany:
"In 1878 Tiffany’s Blue Book catalogue acquired its first cover in the particular shade of blue now known as Tiffany Blue®… The famous blue, variously described as forget-me-not blue and robin’s egg blue, may have been chosen because of the popularity of the turquoise gemstone in 19th century jewelry. Turquoise was also a favorite of Victorian brides who gave their attendants a dove-shaped brooch set with turquoise so that they would not forget the bride."
Our brooch-pendant would make the ultimate bridesmaid gift in true Victorian fashion. View the brooch on our website, http://bit.ly/z64oO5.
