A classic Edwardian pendant – very light and pretty, with floral and leaf motifs. In the Edwardian period fashion drew inspiration from the French courts of the eighteenth century; it took on an almost ethereal lightness, with layers of delicate fabrics, lace and feathers. Pale pastels and monochromatic white-on-white were the dominant colour schemes. Demand for jewellery styles as light and delicate as the clothing ensued. The chain is platinum (a strong material, complimenting the fashion’s ‘lightness’) and 15ct gold.
