BackStory
On Edwardian. The Edwardian period (also known as the Bell Epoch or beautiful era) from 1901 - 1910 was chiefly characterized by elegant, monochromatic designs in platinum, white gold, and silver, fitted with sparkling gemstones or glass. This was a time of affluence and progress for much of the world. As the Victorian era faded, traditionally-minded designers crafted pieces that felt as classic as Victorian jewelry but had a lighter feel and often ethereal look. Designs like the négligée necklace - asymmetrical and delicate - became popular.


On Period Pieces. "Period pieces" refer to those pieces that feel quintessentially of a certain era or movement. These pieces include the typical design elements associated with that period for a classic look. Period pieces are emblematic of culture and trends at the time.
