In 1901, Queen Victoria's son, Edward VII took the throne and officially begun the Edwardian Era (1901-1915), following the Victorian Era. The reign of King Edward VII brought a new romance defined by lightness, delicacy, predominately filigree work and mostly set in platinum. There was quite a bit of knife-edge metal work to add a lacy emphasis, giving the Edwardian Era jewelry more intricate and detailed design.
Diamonds were mainly used and can be seen accented with pearls. We also saw a new technique called 'milgraining' which gave pieces a more decorative look. Check out some of our favorite pieces from this elegant, feminine era:
