Edwardian Jewellery

Edward VII became king in 1901 following the death of his mother, Queen Victoria. The sombre black mourning jewellery that was so popular during the Victorian era was transformed into a style which was much more decorative and delicate.

Edward’s wife, the Princess of Wales greatly influenced the population with an abundance of lace, silks and diamonds. 

While the Edwardian period is fairly short in comparison to the Victorian and Georgian periods, it produced some fantastic and elaborate jewellery, reflective of the carefree attitude of this period.

The Edwardian period also covers the Art Nouveau period which is usually considered its own separate entity, although there is a lot of crossover with the Edwardian period.

While heavily influenced by the Victorian period before it, Edwardian jewellery manages to have an identity all of its own and we think that its beauty still manages to shine through over 100 years later.
