The Georgian Era of jewelry takes places between 1714 and 1830. It covers the period of four King Georges who reigned over England consecutively.
Georgian era jewelry was handcrafted and worn mostly by royalty and the wealthy. Unfortunately, jewelry from this period is very rare. During the Georgian era, jewelers would take pieces apart to repurpose gold and gemstones and create new treasures.
Georgian jewelry tends to be romantic and sentimental in look and feel. Chokers and cameos were popular among the well-dressed ladies. Precious stones and metals like diamonds, yellow gold, rubies, emeralds, garnets and pearls, were used. Most of the designs were inspired by nature, such as flowers, leaves and birds.
