The Georgian period was eponymously named in British history after the four king Georges that ruled in succession: From George I in 1714 to George IV’s death 1830. Although, the period is named after English monarchs it was an age of international exchange and technical innovation particularly in gold and metal work. Most Georgian jewellery settings are made from silver fused to yellow gold. Stones were often cut in flat rose cuts foiled at the back to create a brighter affect and mask imperfections. Common motifs for Rococo style Georgian pieces include flourishes and bows, foliage and organic forms. It was also common to have a suite including several matching pieces, rather than a singular piece so the jewellery formed a consistent decorative theme to accompany the elaborate hand-sewn gowns worn at court.
