In a previous post, I discussed Arts & Crafts Jewelry and the connection with the Pre-Raphaelite painters. Here are some more beautiful Pre-Raphaelite paintings (or Pre-Raphaelite style) showing jewelry, much of it appearing to be Arts & Crafts jewelry. I believe this is an excellent way of becoming familiar with the jewelry styles of the era. I enjoy looking carefully at each painting and attempting to identify what each model is wearing.
