Archaeological Revival jewelry has a wide-spread influence of many ancient civilizations. The trend was prevalent in the decorative arts from about 1800 to 1889. Greek artifacts were discovered in Crete between 1806 and 1814, sparking a fashion trend for all of the best dressed Westerners. The beautiful and exotic techniques, patterns and motifs were copied and used in all sorts of jewelry pieces, and continued to remain popular well into the Edwardian Era.

This Greek Revival brooch, crafted in 14 karat yellow gold and beautifully enameled in black, white and gold is in pristine condition! A bold Greek Key design takes center stage, with fine scrolling and linear work embellishing this remarkable Victorian era piece. In true Victorian fashion, it has a hook on the reverse, perfect for dangling your favorite charm or drop from! Appropriate for any gender to wear today, it is truly a wonderful accessory from the past that has retained its chic allure for almost two hundred years!
