Frequently seen as ‘old fashioned’, and assumed of little popularity or value, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian pieces of jewellery pass down through generations and often lay untouched in jewellery boxes.
Antique jewellery has in fact, for several years, attracted growing admiration leading to strong international interest at auction. Period pieces such as enamelled brooches, holbeins, bar brooches, mourning rings, and pendants like the one shown here often go unworn, but command surprisingly high prices.
