Steampunk Jewelry: Victorian Fantasy


When it comes to reading material, fantasy would be my favorite choice; J.R.R. Tolkien, Jonathan Stroud, Philip Pullman and the inevitable George R.R. Martin, to name a few. As I was writing about the classic floor lamp by Jamie Young, I came across the term Steampunk – A sub-genre of a world where steam power is still widely used – often referring to the 19th century and Victorian era Britain.

It features anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them, incorporating fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. Today, I would like to share a few dazzling pieces of jewelry and artifacts, designed in a pseudo-Victorian mechanical steampunk style, that would transport you into the realm of fantasy and magic.

Take this magical Galvanic Magneto Inducer Cuff Bracelet for example; a primary power-source for men, featuring a brass lion’s head devouring wrapped copper wire enhanced curved I-beam. A lynchpin fits into the lion head, securing the adjustable hinged clasp. Behind it, is a movable brass dial, and then twin brass plates reading “Alchemy GMT” and “HT Magneto Accumulator” on one side and “Danger – High Voltage” and “E.E. Rosenstein. Pat. Pend.” on the other. 3 1/3″ wide, 3 1/3″ tall, 1/3″ (9mm) wide. Bracelet adjusts from 7 1/2″ to 8 1/2″.


This gothic necklace is called the GMT Electro Magnetic Chamber; it has a real glass vial with removable cork, hanging on a chain to keep it from being lost. Inside the vial is a skeletal tadpole, but you can store scented oil or whatever you like. On either side of the vial are wrapped copper coils, bolted in place on a U-shaped frame, then attached to the chain via twin brass colored embellishes with hematite cabochons. Pendant is 3″ by 3″ and comes on a 20″ cable chain.


Crafted from fine English lead-free pewter and brass with twin serpents framing the outside, this enchanting Anguistralobe Pendant Necklace is described as an intricate movable miniature of the 18th century instrument to measure the path of heavenly bodies. 2″ long. Comes with 20″ curb chain and lobster-claw-clasps.
