Georgian Period (1714 - 1837):
Spanning more than 100 years, the Georgian period was named after the four Kings who resided on the throne of England during this time; King George I, King George II, King George III and King George IV.
In Georgian times, jewellery was considered a decadence only the rich were able to afford. Parures (sets of matching jewellery) were popular as were sentimental pieces such as miniature painted portraits, “lover’s eyes” (a pendant sized painting of a loved one’s eye) and memento mori rings. Rose Cut diamonds along with point-cuts, table cuts, old mine cuts and single cuts defined the look and style of the jewellery produced in this period. Gemstones had foil backs to enhance their hue and were set in high carat gold and silver.
