The Georgian period spanned from 1714 to 1837, making it the oldest of the major antique jewellery eras. Its pieces often feature exquisite metalwork full of depth and detail that can only be achieved with a high level of skilled artistry. They favoured rose-cut and flat-cut stones with large facets that were often foiled to enhance their natural beauty.
