Novelty Victorian Jewelry was a distinct line of jewelry design characteristic of the 1860's and 1870's, based primarily on certain naivete and frivolousness. A 'novelty' par excellence, this line of design amused and suited an ephemeral whim of fashion. Novelty brooches were designed as rabbits biting a carrot or holding a turnip, chickens just emerging from diamond eggshells, kittens playing with a ball, snails exposing themselves out of their shells, and the like. The reverse of this stunning vintage snail pin is rendered in polished yellow gold and features a well-designed hinged pin and a retractable hook.
