Victorian seed pearl slides are pieces of jewelry that originated during the Victorian era, spanning the reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901. “Seed pearls” refer to small, usually rounded, pearls that are less than 2mm in diameter.
A “slide” typically refers to a small ornament that can be adjusted along a chain or cord, and it often served as a clasp or decorative element on a watch chain or necklace during this period. Victorian seed pearl slides are typically delicate, featuring intricate designs and detailing, and they are often crafted with gold or other precious metals.
These pieces are often sought after as collector’s items due to their age, craftsmanship, and the history associated with the Victorian era.
