Wealth flourishes during the Edwardian period and vintage jewelry and clothing fashions reflect the mood of frivolity with light, decorative layers. The finest antique Edwardian jewelry mirrors the effect with filigree and decorative swag, tassel and floral garlands —typical of the neo-classical and decorative Rococo influences of the time. Look for impressive Edwardian Necklaces and vintage Rings with roman influences. The white-on-white look predominates, with rich combinations of pearl, platinum and diamond. Antique Edwardian diamond jewelry is still considered the best of its time, created to very high standards. Vintage Edwardian pendants reflect the daring of an exposed neckline in evening fashion, while chokers (a favorite of King Edward's Queen Alexandra) speak to the high collars worn by day. Long strands of pearls or precious metal ending in a tassel, often worn along with feather ornaments in the hair, capture the fascination with the Maharaja Princesses.All things exotic, luxurious, and embellished explode in Edwardian jewelry — a highly collectible and sought-after estate jewelry period with excellence in artistry and exquisite hand-craftsmanship. Look for Millegrain estate jewelry pieces (a method of fusing thin bands and tiny grains of platinum to make settings appear invisible.) The Negligee pendant is another hot Edwardian estate jewelry trend where two stones or pearls hang at different lengths from a central diamond.
