Pre-Raphaelite Paintings with Jewelry

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.
