This 18K white gold Edwardian pendant from 1920 honours its era's spirit through the lacy piercings in its pear-shaped halo of 13 rose rose cut diamonds around a dangling old European cut diamond. Topped with a subtle diamond sprouting a double French lilly, this charming jewel could be the icing on your cake coming straight from the love bakery.

Style: Edwardian - The Edwardian era or Edwardian period in the United Kingdom is the period covering the reign of King Edward VII, 1901 to 1910. The death of Queen Victoria in January 1901 and the succession of her son, Edward, marked the start of a new century and the end of the Victorian era. While Victoria had shunned society, Edward was the leader of a fashionable elite which set a style influenced by the art and fashions of continental Europe—perhaps because of the King's fondness for travel. The era was marked by significant shifts in politics as sections of society which had been largely excluded from wielding power in the past, such as common labourers and women, became increasingly politicised.
