History

The term Georgian refers to an era in English history during the reign of Kings George I-IV from 1714 - 1837. Georgian refers to the English art and culture produced during this era. In terms of jewelry design this nation wasn’t the sole influence. Historical events in France, Germany, and Italy also influenced Georgian jewelry motifs and designs.

The century saw a great increase in evening pursuits as improvements in candles gave rise to longer burning and brighter candles. Balls and soirees rose to exceptional heights. Thus the divide between day and evening jewelry marked a new chapter in jewelry history.

Women often wore pearls, garnets, moss agate or colored gems or paste in daytime. The most formal evening events were the only appropriate times to wear diamond jewelry. Consequently, diamonds found new favor.
