Turquoise has continued to be used and worn by royalty and underwent a revival in popularity in the mid-1800’s with the advent of the colorful Victorian Age. It was a favorite stone of Queen Victoria’s, filled with sentimental meaning. As gifts for Queen Victoria’s bridesmaids, Prince Albert designed a turquoise brooch in the shape of the Coburg Eagle (see the collage); the brooches were made by the jeweller Charles du Vé for Garrard.
