ericaweiner The word "turquoise" is derived from the French pierres tourques, meaning "Turkish stone", acknowledging the widely held belief that the stone was first brought to the Western world by the Turks in the 13th century. The Victorians were nuts about it. This 1880's ring combines turquoise with black enamel, another Victorian fave. It's online now. 2h

ericaweiner This Edwardian lavaliere features the suffragette colors of green, white, and purple using peridot, seed pearls, and amethyst. Jewels like these were worn to express one's alignment with the suffrage movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries in Britain. When purple is interpreted as violet, the colors ordered in the sequence of green, white, and violet form the acronym GWV for "Give Women Votes". It's online now. 22h
