How charming is this yellow gold and Essex crystal bracelet?! Essex crystal is a very recognizable Victorian aesthetic, which became popular during the mid-19th century. Essex crystal pieces are formed from a rock crystal cabochon (polished domes of rock crystal with a flat base), an image or motif is then reverse carved into the flat base, and then painted, to give them impression of a three dimensional object or image encapsulated in the cabochon when viewed from above.
