Georgian Era Rings

Georgian-era rings are hallmarked by their distinctive and intricate shapes and creative gemstone cuttings. This era’s characteristic style is thought to be influenced by the excavation of Pompeii in around 1740, which ushered in the use of laurels, grape vines, leaves and keys as features of a ring's design.

Due to the nature of its period, the craftsmanship of Georgian rings was incredibly labour-intensive, which is why they are extremely rare today, compared to rings of other periods. Most of the exquisitely complex details within Georgian metalwork were achieved by hand, through a technique called 'Repoussé'. This specialised technique entailed hammering malleable metal into intricate designs and patterns.

Antique Georgian Rings FAQs

Georgian jewellery is characterized by its incredibly ornate metalwork. This level of artistry could only be achieved by hand fabrication.

Victorian-era rings are characterised by the three defining periods during the monarch, Queen Elizabath’s reign. Victorian jewellery from the Romantic period was heavily influenced by Queen Victoria’s successful courtship with her husband Albert and thus, stylistically featured symbols of love and romance. Conversely, Victorian jewellery designed in the Grand period reflected themes of grief, in the wake of the passing of the monarch’s husband. Styles in this period were sombre, often featuring black gemstones such as onyx, along with black enamel. Victorian era jewellery created in the Aesthetic period were influenced by the monarch’s excitement towards the future and typically featured lighter and more practical designs, in contrast to earlier styles.

Conversely, Edwardian-era jewellery is characterised by its delicate use of the colour white and its use of elongated oval shapes.

Art Nouveau jewellery is characterised by its use of soft and organic figures and curved lines, as well as its use of floral patterns, vines, and leaves. In contrast, Art Deco rings are characterised by their use of geometric shapes and distinctive patterns and gemstones of contrasting shades.

It is often the gemstone that determines how tough an antique ring is. For example, Diamonds have a rating of 10 on the Mohs scale, making them extremely tough gemstones. Additionally, ruby and sapphire gemstones have a Mohs hardness rating of 9 out of 10.

A high rating on the Mohs scale indicates that a degree of toughness is present, meaning it has no tendency to cleave when struck. Due to their durability, these gemstone is a great choice for rings and other pieces of jewellery that are worn on a regular basis.

In terms of sustainability, purchasing antique and vintage rings rather than a new ring can reduce your carbon footprint. As a result, it makes more sense to reuse valuable gemstones such as gold and diamonds rather than mining new ones.

With this in mind, purchasing antique rings and vintage rings is considerably better as it mitigates the damage done to the environment from the effects of mining practices.
