Crafted between 1901-1909, Edwardian jewellery was the last jewellery era to be named after the UK’s reigning monarch. The Edwardian period’s namesake King Edward VII was the embodiment of naughty-but-nice.

Suffrage jewellery refers to jewellery worn by suffragists, including suffragettes, in the years immediately preceding the First World War, ranging from the homemade to the mass-produced to fine, one-off Arts and Crafts pieces. Suffragette jewellery in Britain was made of green, white and violet semi-precious stones, whose colours were a code for Give Women Votes. Suffragette jewellery originated in the 1890s, after the suffragette movement was banned. Green represented hope, white was indicative of their purity, and purple – or violet – represented the dignity of the women working for voting rights. It was also believed that these colours represented the motto of the Suffragette movement: Give Women the Vote (hence the use of violet rather than just purple)

Edwardian-era rings tend to be larger, opulent pieces, and stacked ring designs were popular. The metal surfaces of the rings were often diamond-encrusted for additional shimmer. Each of these rings is a work of art, showcasing a bygone era of grace, elegance, and the royalty the Edwardian era is named for.

Peridot is a brightly coloured, yellow-green gem that’s been prized since the age of the Ancient Egyptians. The stone is naturally formed in lava flows around the world, and is composed of the mineral olivine. Some rare and valuable forms of this gem can also be found inside of meteorites.

Amethyst is crystalline quartz in colours ranging from pale lilac to deep reddish purple. With a relatively high hardness of 7, the February birthstone is a fine faceable jewellery gem for all purposes.
