***About Edwardian Era: Edwardian jewelry started its roots in the late 1890’s. Edwardian Rings represent some of the finest examples of diamond and platinum jewelry in existence. Edwardian Diamond jewels were made to look as light and delicate as possible, reflecting the femininity of the Edwardian lady and complimenting the ethereal fashions of the time. Superlative attention was paid to every detail of the Edwardian jewel, and the quality of the craftsmanship explains why these treasures have survived to the present day.

Some essential identifying features of Edwardian Engagement Rings are delicate open pierced work and filigree work; designs incorporating gentle curves and scrolled patterns; fine milgraining, and tiny diamond accents (melee) set in platinum . The overall effect being light, lacy and feminine. Diamonds were essential and platinum was the metal of choice.

Channel and invisible setting, which had been developed in the 1890’s, worked well in platinum, showing off the newer cutting styles of diamonds. The strength of platinum allowed jewelers to carve delicate, openwork designs with scalloped edges like fine white lace, honeycomb patterns, and designs resembling bows and embroidery. The millgrain method, where delicate beads were tooled along the edge of diamond settings, had become the most popular effect.
