Edwardian era jewelry is marked by grace and elegance. This period began when Edward VII became king of the United Kingdom in 1901 and ended in 1915. The main elements used during this era are diamonds, pearls and platinum.
Due to advancements in jewelry making, platinum was used for the first time and jewelry makers were able to create intricate designs that resemble lace and feathers. That’s why Edwardian pieces usually have a light and delicate look. Many Edwardian pieces are designed in the form of tassels, flowers, bows, stars and other elaborate designs, like this Edwardian Aquamarine brooch embellished with diamonds.
