Georgian Jewelry (1714 – 1837)


Georgian jewelry was produced in England around the time of the reigns of King George I to King George IV, 1714 to 1837.  Early Georgian style was heavily influenced by French Rococo. There are few pieces of Georgian jewelry still intact today: Not only was precious jewelry enjoyed only by a very limited few such as royalty, aristocracy and the very wealthy, but also were gemstones and gold often re-used and re-fashioned into later designs due to difficulty in obtaining raw materials.

Georgian jewelry is characterized by the use of what are known today as “semi-precious” stones in closed-back settings with floral or scroll motifs. These stones, such as garnets, topaz, aquamarines, amethysts etc, cut into early faceted gems, were very desirable and hard to obtain at that time. Gold work was often very simple. Stones were cut with few facets, making the stones appear glass-like. Eventually, more fully faceted diamonds started to become prevalent.

The 2014 Winter Antiques Show


This year the annual Winter Antiques Show, held at the landmark Park Avenue Armory, celebrates its 60th year, its Diamond Jubilee. This will be our 53rd year exhibiting, and we are pleased to be a part of such a highly esteemed show, deemed by many to be America’s foremost antique show. The opening gala was last night, and the show is open to the general public beginning today through February 2nd.

Proceeds from admissions benefit East Side House Settlement, providing children and families in the South Bronx with education and technology training programming “as gateways out of poverty. Approximately half of their funding comes from private philanthropy.”

This year’s loan exhibition features the fantastic collection of the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts, now celebrating its 215th year. The exhibition includes a selection of textiles, sculpture, works on paper, and paintings “offering a celebration of global connection that encourages discourse, evokes emotion and ignites curiosity.”

In celebration of the Show’s 60th Diamond Jubilee year there is also a display of grand diamond jewels by Tiffany, Graff, and others.

Our booth displays a selection of our American and European jewelry, including two exceptional diamond and emerald brooches, one in the form of a 19th century sunburst centering a 22 ct emerald, the other, an 18th century butterfly. Also on display  are objets de vertu, Russian works of art, and, of course, Fabergé. This year’s highlights include Fabergé silver animal-form sculptures and a collection of hardstone Fabergé circus elephants, mostly from the Collection of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester (1900-1974), the son of King George V and Queen Mary. Also on display is a rare enameled gold reliquary cross from the late 17th century, set with emeralds and pearls and engraved with the Crucifixion and the list of the relics contained therein. Made for one of the successors of Patriarch Philaret of Moscow, it contains a relic of Alexander Svirski, whose relics were discovered in 1641.

Come feast your eyes and engage your mind at this culturally enriching and aesthetically engaging event. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Park Avenue Armory is located at 67th St. and Park Avenue. The show is open daily, 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m, and 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sundays and Thursday. Admission, which includes a catalogue, is $25.
