The Victorian Era saw the rise in manufacturing, making jewelry cheaper and easier for more people to acquire. Necklaces and cameos were very popular in darker colors due Queen Victoria's mourning period.
After the turn of the century, chokers became popular as Queen Victoria's daughter-in-law Alexandra would wear multiple tight strands of pearls to hide a scar.
Ladies of all social and economical classes would adorn themselves with trinkets and jewelry from head to toe. Ladies began to layer and stack their jewelry instead of just wearing one or two pieces.
