Edwardian CrossThe Edwardian era (1901 – 1915,) like the Georgian and Victorian eras before it, derives its name from the reign of an English King, Edward VII (1901-1910). One of the most recognizable design elements of Edwardian jewelry is the intricate and extensive use of filigree & milgrain work. The filigree work created a lacy, feminine and airy look. The time intensive and detail-oriented designs show the incredible craftsmanship that went into creating each of these pieces. This is the final jewelry period to be defined by a British monarch and considered one of the most innovative & luxurious eras in jewelry history.
