The Edwardian Era (c.1901-c.1915) was named after English king Edward VII, and introduced jewelry pieces that were considered sophisticated & 'softer' than previous eras. Popular designs in the Edwardian Era were ornamental motifs, filigree techniques, and delicate lace detailing. Common metals used were platinum, gold, and sterling silver. Monogrammed designs etched in gold filled and sterling setting bases were also popular during the 1900s within the Edwardian Era. 17th and 18th century architecture & jewelry were inspirations during the Edwardian Era. Ancient periods that helped influence the Edwardian Era included the Roman, French Baroque, & Ancient Greek styles.
