About Fleur de Lee
Fleur de Lee was born out of my love for beauty and the past. During my childhood I was frequently drawn to the illustrations of beautiful fairy tales- especially the ones that captured the feelings and fashion of another era. Time periods like the Victorian age bring to mind elegance & grace, something the 21st century sometimes overlooks. Born in the melting pot of New York City, I have had the unique experience of seeing the perspective of many world cultures, past and present. My Attraction for period jewelry in these journeys lent greatly to finding jewels from authentic reproduction. England, France, Italy and, of course, my home in New York City have been my hunting grounds. These lovely places, steeped in a Victorian past, have supplied me with more treasures then I could ever imagine. Each treasure that has become part of the Fleur de Lee line have their own history- where & when the original was made. Sometimes even who wore it.
Because of our unique focus we have attracted costumers with different needs such as those in the reenactment groups, theatre, actors, actresses, singers and others.
