JEWELRY BY TIME PERIODS; EDWARDIAN 1901-1915
The fashion was inspired by 18th century French courts and the look was light and delicate. Stars, ribbons and bows were favorite motifs for this period. Pastels, white-on-white, lace, Diamonds, Pearls and Platinum ruled the look.
The look of jewelry that looked like embroidery and lace was made possible by advances in platinum fabrication. Pale colored stones such as amethysts, aquamarines, peridots, pale green garnets and blue sapphires were also popular as well as black opals from Australia.
Pictured is an Edwardian diamond with Pearls and Sapphires and set in Platinum. A perfect example of the period as well as the Stone of September!
