  • An Edwardian Day and Night padlock bracelet. The 9ct rose gold bracelet features a tight curb link chain with every second link engraved on one side. This was so the woman could wear the plain side during the day and the engraved side at night. The heart shaped padlock is plain with a safety chain attached in the centre.

  • Edwardian & Belle Époque Period (1901 - 1910):
    
Named after the reigning King Edward VII and with notable influences from French Rococo décor, this period was the shortest in antique jewellery history. However, it was during this time that platinum was introduced into the art of jewellery making which changed the way diamonds could be set. The popular jewellery design at the time was the “garland” which flowed on from the Art Nouveau period as it focused on nature but more particularly, on flowers and leaves often arranged in some circular shape. Through the use of milgrain and pierced and engraved metals, the Belle Époque designs gave way to jewellery that mimicked the delicate nature of lace and ribbon with natural pearls and old mine cut diamonds being the material of choice.
