Proprietors David and Veronica Prebble work with jewelry buyers throughout the world, and the couple travels to jewelry shows to find the best-quality pieces possible. “For the past 200 years, Jewelry has been the highest expression of the various design periods,” David says, “We appreciate well executed design from almost every period.” -Victoria Magazine / February 2010

Georgian & Memento Mori Jewelry

Georgian jewelry is one of the more difficult-to-find genres of jewelry in the antique realm. The Georgian era is named for the 4 King Georges of England, ranging from the years 1714-1837. The influences to these design elements, as well as the techniques used vary because of the length of the Georgian era. Many Georgian jewelers foil-backed paste (faceted glass or crystal,) as well as gemstones. Like-wise much Georgian jewelry employed enameling and carving techniques, with larger formatted pendants and rings. The late Georgian jewelry is attributed as the beginning of the memento mori genre because of the revolutionary war in America, although memento mori jewelry reaches much farther back in time, whether in jewelry or art alike. 

Along with Georgian and Georgian-inspired pieces on this page, please find our selection of Memento Mori jewelry. Consisting of gold, hair, and sculls, memento mori jewelry has been a popular item for collectors and was once a craft to memorialize a loved one, prior to photography, which later became the main form of remembrance via the locket.
