Setting diamonds in silver, “silver set”, was a technique used in the Georgian/Victorian period as white coloured gold and platinum were not yet available. A very thin layer of silver was applied to the gold, on which the diamonds were set, to show them off to their best advantage (as the yellow colour of the gold would reflect and refract the light, thereby, distorting the white colour of the diamonds).

Belle Epoque

“La Belle Epoque” was a period of European history from the end of the 19th Century to the first decade of the 20th Century.

It was a period characterized by the optimism of regional peace and economic prosperity. This led to many technological, scientific and cultural innovations and where the arts flourished especially in Paris, France. It was a golden age where many masterpieces of art, literature, music, theatre were created.

Belle Epoque jewellery has a distinctive appearance with soft, curved shapes and lines and often enhanced with foliate swags and bows. Jewellery designers often experimented with a wide variety of new techniques, among others enamelling and the use of guilloche enamel.
