Since 1977, Victoriana has remained, within a 2 block radius, in the heart of LoDo in Denver, Colorado. Currently located at home in Larimer Square since August 2008, visiting is an experience in and of itself. Victoriana reflects a nostalgia not found in any other jewelry stores in the region. Within the century old cases is a hand picked collection of jewelry ranging from gold-filled Victorian bar pins to signed platinum and diamond necklaces from the 1930’s. Proprietors David and Veronica Prebble work with jewelry buyers throughout the world, and the couple travels to jewelry shows to find the best-quality pieces possible. “For the past 200 years, Jewelry has been the highest expression of the various design periods,” David says, “We appreciate well executed design from almost every period.” -Victoria Magazine / February 2010

Retro Engagement 1940-60

With the end of WWII, and a new growing economy in America and Europe, jewelers began to recover from the depression and slow economy brought on by the war and the use of platinum in war-time machinery. They took on a genius approach to amping up sales and the created a new tradition; a solitaire engagement ring, presented upon proposal, and a matching wedding band used for the wedding day ceremony. This increased their profit margins and to this day most American and European jewelers sell both engagement and wedding rings to be worn as a stack or soldered together. Due to the modern movement taking a foothold in design, a lot of designers also made things with asymmetrical elements and simplified structured compared to the elaborate Art Deco era.
