The Georgian Era is known for its hand crafted designs that shaped the jeweler world as we know it today! Georgian jewelry today is extremely rare!Neoclassical motifs used in the late 18th and early 19th century are predominantly classic with influences of architectural decorations. Pieces created during this time had a high level of symmetry and low-carved reliefs. Popular themes found in these pieces include rosettes, vases, urns, bows, hearts, portraits, and snakes. The chasing technique is a very difficult silversmith process where the artist uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand-etch patterns within the metal work. Only the best jewelers were trained in this challenging process. The band of the bracelet is ornate with both sides featuring hand-chased floral pattern designs.
