The Edwardian period has been named after the fun loving ‘Bertie’, King Edward VII of England. During the short, and long-awaited, reign of Queen Victoria’s eldest son Bertie, ‘La Belle Epoque’ produced a spectacular array of jewellery. Jewellery makers were fuelled by Queen Alexandra’s (1844-1925) trendsetting love of extravagant jewels.
