The Georgian era was a period of vast change, exemplified by the early stages of the industrial revolution and the formation of the United States of America. Motifs were common in Georgian jewelry as wearers sought to represent their personalities or sensibilities through the items that they wore. In an age where women were so restricted, fashion and jewelry could be the perfect way to express your personality whilst respecting the boundaries of etiquette.

Swans are present in many European fairy tales, symbolizing chastity (partly because of their white plumage), artistry, and beauty. On a related note, swans are associated with fidelity, loyalty in marriage, and monogamy, because they mate for life.
