Kid's Blue Hummingbird Enamel Charm Bangle
Reminiscent of the many species of birds we see in the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area throughout the warm weather season.
Colonial Williamsburg's DeWitt Wallace Collections and Conservation Building contains a small sampling of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century jewelry. The pieces are valued more for their beauty, or their historical associations, than their monetary worth. Precious and semiprecious stones - diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnets - were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today, as were gold and silver.
