The remarkable Georgian era has produced some of the most fascinating, beautiful and collectable jewelry seen today. Dated circa 1715-1840, the era of Georgian jewelry has a certain soul that appeals to the senses, and connects in its timeless antiquity. Each piece of Georgian jewelry emits a presence and character that feels so personal, as if the person who wore it might give you a intelligent wink as you passed them on the street.
One of the most identifiable characteristics of Georgian jewelry is the shape. Often we find a pear, marquise, or most commonly a rectangular shaped gemstone accented by pearls that elegantly echoes the open, squared off neckline of a Georgian gown. The result is striking and feminine, a captivating combination of history and intrigue. Georgian jewelry can be worn everyday, although it requires a little more care as many pieces are backed by metal, and therefore can not get wet.
Above we see a fantastic Georgian garnet ring flanked by pearls. This would make the ultimately fabulous pinky ring. Take a peek at our online Georgian Selction, or come in to see a full array of newly arrived Georgian Jewelry! xoxo -Gemma
