Paisley’s teardrop-shaped swirls create both an expression of spot-on style and a sense of timeless class. While paisley routinely shows up as part of vintage designs, its roots can be traced back much further than the Victorian Era. Paisley-like motifs harken from several parts of the world, including Ireland and South Asia. They showed in in numerous forms of art in India, such as shawls in Kashmir, and it’s through these shawls that paisley made its way to Europe. In the 18th century, these shawls traveled to the England and became popular among the British.
Soon, British designs began mimicking this motif and paisley remained popular into the Victorian Era. The paisley wedding bands in Apples of Gold’s collection are inspired by this time period, and prove that the appeal of this pattern never fades.
