The Edwardian period is named for England’s King Edward VII, Queen Victoria’s oldest son, who ascended the throne in 1901. King Edward and Queen Alexandra entertained lavishly and set popular fashion trends, including her preference for white jewelry, especially diamonds and ropes of pearls.
The development of the oxyacetylene torch in 1903 allowed jewelers to create pieces completely out of platinum. They designed delicate, lacy jewelry that took advantage of platinum's strength, featuring ribbon garlands, laurel wreaths, and tassels, primarily set with diamonds and pearls.
New fashions developed throughout the Edwardian period, calling for new types of jewelry. Small circular or bar brooches added sparkle to soft white day dresses, while delicate lavaliere and negligee necklaces glittered in the evening. For the well-heeled, no evening ensemble was complete without a pearl dog-collar choker and diamond tiara or bandeau.
