Jewelry throughout the Georgian period was eclectic, refined, and ornate. Georgian jewelry, much like its society at the time, varied greatly throughout the reigns of different king Georges. 

The style of jewelry throughout this time period was very much centered around delicate cannetille openwork and repoussé, with an emphasis on the creation of ornate pieces which were for the most part meticulously crafted by hand! The Georgians loved to impress, and they also loved to outwardly display extravagance.

Here, we enjoy a rare Georgian example of a seal intalgio featuring a hound and a crane; the dog has long been a symbol of fidelity, and here fed by the crane, we can read this seal to mean that wisdom feeds fidelity. It is wise to possess the honorable loyalty of a dog, and feed that close fostering among friends. 

Set in my custom designed setting, this beautiful example will be a favorite in whatever collection she joins.
