Mottos, Messages, and Gem Lore in Victorian Jewelry

Tuesday, Mar 4 7:00p

In this illustrated talk, Historic New England Associate Curator Laura Johnson reveals messages both hidden and overt in Victorian gems. From the many meanings of turquoise to "fide" rings and the language of flowers, nineteenth-century women and men used gems and ornaments to whisper sweet nothings or softly spell out their devotion. Before and after the lecture, view antique Victorian jewelry pieces from Providence’s Reliable Gold. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Light refreshments follow the lecture.
