"Wearing ornaments using parts of animals, birds, insects, shells or fish was not new in the nineteenth century. What was new in the age of Victoria was the way in which animal parts became accepted fashion accessories...(for) pure novelty and decorative quality...(as well as) the desire to demonstrate awareness of the revolutionary developments in the study of nature."
