What was the Georgian era?

- Sep 21, 2018-

The Georgian era was between 1714 and 1830 in England, during the reigns of the first four Hanoverian kings of Great Britain: George I, George II, George III, and George IV. This was the time of the American and French Revolutions, but it was also the era of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire and Jane Austen.

Because the Georgian era was so long, styles of jewelry varied greatly. However, there were several common themes and styles that remained from beginning to end.
