The Georgian Era describes reigns of four English kings (all Georges) and runs from 1714 to 1830. An truly incredible time period for jewelry, we dare to say it may be our favorite. Although the name references English arts and culture, Georgian jewelry was produced around the globe. Events in France, Italy, and even Germany influenced the styles and themes found in 18th century fine pieces.

Despite being a war-ridden era, Georgian jewelry is typically feminine, glittery, and beautifully made. Diamonds were used almost exclusively during the beginning of the 1700s, but by the end of the era and into the Victorian period, colored gemstones were in high demand as well. The rose cut and old mine cuts were the prize of the 18th century and were so adored, man made replicas such as paste, started being produced and worn even by royalty.

The fabrication of jewelry during this time could only be accomplished by extraordinary skilled craftsmen. Early on, metalsmiths had to hand hammer precious metals into sheets before they were molded by hand into desired shapes. Lapidarists cut all stones by hand, making each and everyone slightly unlike the other. It was an exquisite time for the sophistication of the jewelry industry and diamond cutting technique.

This heart-stopping ring is exactly why we adore old cut diamonds from the Georgian Era. A large and very unique pillow shaped center stone is surrounded by several rose cut diamonds set in silver. During the 18th century, diamonds were set in silver to enhance their natural sparkle in candlelight. Yellow gold was still the metal of choice, so pieces often involve both silver and gold, giving a subtle two-tone look. The linear silhouette of this beauty makes it incredibly universal as it could be used as a gorgeous engagement ring, wedding band, or the perfect in between for those who want just one ring to rule them all.
