The Georgian era, a time period from 1714 to 1830 (sometimes considered up to 1837), often reflects a longing for the "good old days.” The “fun” times of the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance years through their designs and styles. Colorful gemstones and striking diamonds using cool rose cuts came into play as this was the when a real interest in bringing the bling, flash, fire and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds set in jewelry started. 🔥✨ Colorful popular gemstones of this era were also used in rings including emeralds, rubies, sapphires, garnet, topaz and black onyx.
During his time they also felt a big need to preserve memories and the times of the day. As a result, distinct and very unique Georgian rings such as the memorial ring, the locket ring, and the poesy ring were created.
