Style: Georgian
Style characteristics: Georgian jewelry (1714-1830) - The Georgian period spans more or less the reign of the four successive English kings George I, George II, George III and George IV between 1714 and 1830.
Era: ca. 1780
Extra information: Georgian period 1760-1830 - Georgian jewellery refers to jewellery made during the years when the four King Georges ruled Great Britain. Georgian jewellery encompassed most of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.
Ornate gold work in the form of cannetille, with its intricate designs of tendrils, scrolls and granulation became widely popular around 1830. Gemstones were close-backed with colored foils mounted behind them to enhance the color. Diamonds were set with silver-topped gold to emphasize their whiteness. Enameling was another important decorative element. Cobalt blue enamel was often used in combination with diamonds. Neoclassical motifs proliferated: Greek key, urns, plumes and acorns. Fashionable styles included long drop earrings, necklaces composed of plaques joined by gold chains, rivières, bracelets worn in pairs, and large finger rings. Long gold muff chains of textured, round links came into fashion towards the end of this period.
During the early Georgian period (George I, 1714-1727), the French Rococo style dominated the arts. There wasn't a specific individual British style of jewellery during this period, like there was in the Victorian period . The jewellery of this period consisted largely of nature pieces, including designs with birds, flowers, leaves, insects, and feathers. They were delicate and light, and many were set on a spring so that they trembled. Those pieces set with precious gemstones were very unique-they were entirely handmade. Most pieces were encrusted with gemstones, and the type of metal used to create pieces was of secondary importance. The most popular motifs of this time for diamonds were baskets of flowers, spurts of foliage, and feather plumes. During the Georgian period, jewellery pieces with less precious gemstones were also produced in greater quantities, using coral, garnets, turquoise, early faceted diamonds set in silver and even paste.
