The 19th century was so long ago, virtually everything was different: people rode horses to work, parts of the country were still as of yet undiscovered, and none of it much mattered, since no one lived past 26. For mewelry that would've totally known how to caulk a wagon, check out Pyrrha.
With a store just now open on 3rd after years of selling to other retailers, Pyrrha's an actually cool mewlery line that started when a pair of Vancouverites came across a box of 19th century wax seals, which they decided to make into jewelry, rather than a cloying, scarred, but admittedly talented pop star. Those seals are now remade as sterling silver, bronze, and 14 karat gold pendants, with options including an anchor with "Still Have Hope" emblazoned across the top; an hourglass atop wings reading "Carpe Diem", and a dagger flanked by the French words for "Courage Without Fear", as "Losing Wars without Caring" was too long. In addition to the pendants, they've got a schton of other badass mewlery, including bracelets (a Victorian number w/ a lamb sitting atop a crown), rings (a medieval looking option w/ wings wrapping a bale of wheat), and earrings like mini-fox head studs, which should really only be worn by Jamie's son, and even then... come on, don't get earrings.
They've also got 50+ options that're in-store only, plus a couple of pieces that weren't made from the wax seals, like a repurposed tooth, and a cast of a skeleton key, which apparently had the bad luck of being 27.
