"Knots have been a recurring motif in jewellery since the end of the Middle Ages. ... Perhaps the best known English example is the series of tasselled knots on the collar of the Order of the Garter, made in gold modelled to resemble twisted rope. ... enduringly popular in jewellery was the true lovers' knot, in form rather like a 'figure of eight'. It symbolized a bond that could only be undone in death and was much used in sentimental pieces of the seventeenth century. The knot's more frivolous relation, the bow, appears to have been a later motif in jewellery but, once established, has been used up to the present day." writes Claire Phipps in her book Jewels & Jewellery.

Early seventeenth-century women's fashion shows the use of bows as trimming or being used to fasten jewels to the dress. By mid-century, these fabric bows were being replaced by jewelled or enamelled ones and the motif  soon was being used in other types of jewels. Bow brooches were established as a basic item in a woman's jewellery casket.

A glimpse into the then Princess Victoria's jewellery box gives the researcher some insight as to what was considered suitable jewels for a young lady, even if she was a Princess.
"Her Journal provides an interesting record of her daily life, and, most pertinently, of  birthday and Christmas presents. Among those were many jewels, easily recognizable as currently fashionable but modest pieces in the form of flowers, bows and lockets.

The only valuable jewels she owned before her accession were the diamond, sapphire and emerald-set pieces given her by William IV and Queen Adelaide as the inevitability of her succession grew near."

For her fourteenth birthday, Queen Adelaide gave the Princess
"a brooch of turquoises in the form of a bow".

On 30 September 1838, she received two turquoise and diamond sévignés, the gift of her fashionable aunt, Queen Louise of the Belgians.
King Leopold and Queen Louise were visiting the Duchess of Kent, the King's sister, at Ramsgate. The Princess wrote in her journal that the brooches were "...quite lovely".

A sévigné is a specific type of bow brooch, characterized by two or more extended loops, sometimes drooping slightly, from a central element or a loop. It is named after Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, Marquess of Sévigné (1626 - 1696).

These brooches, seen above, were auctioned at Christie's 20 November 2013 for $10, 625 USD. They came from the collection of the late Mrs. T.S. Eliot, the wife of T.S. Eliot, the poet.

Thank you to Laura for this very interesting story about Queen Victorias Jewels.
