The Edwardian era spans roughly 1890 - 1910 (give or take) with the reign of England’s King Edward VII. This era was known for platinum, pearls and diamonds on diamonds on diamonds! The French have lovingly termed this era La Belle Époque meaning ‘the beautiful epoch’. The Edwardian era prioritised craftsmanship, femininity and thoughtful design.
Pearl - one of June’s three birthstones- has enchanted many for centuries. In ancient times, they were believed to be teardrops fallen from heaven. Pearls have been associated with purity, humility and innocence. As such, pearls have become a traditional wedding gift and a favourite bridal jewellery of choice.
