Named for English King Edward VII, Edwardian jewelry is known for its intricacy and delicate detail. Crafted with precious metals, EBTH hosts a variety of Edwardian jewelry.
Edwardian jewelry was at its height of popularity at the turn of the 20th century. Heavily influenced by the fashions of 18th century jewelry, the larger heavier styles in jewelry gave way to delicate, lacy jewelry. With the invention of millegraining (a decoration technique that allows jewelers to deposit tiny amounts of platinum), Edwardian jewlery took on a gossamer-like quality, allowing for more open spaces in designs, and adding a new level of intricacy to their design. Garlands, ribbons, tassels, laces and laurel wreaths became fashionable, all featuring webs of tiny diamonds that complemented the looser, flowing fashions of the era.
