Many people admire the style of fine antique or period jewellery which often has great character and an individual nature to the pieces. An item of antique jewellery that is cared for can last generations and reflects forever the time in which it was made or the occasion for which it was created. Fine antique jewellery is in limited supply, which makes it increasingly desirable.
Pragnell has some superb examples from various periods of style, Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro. These styles tell stories about the lifestyles, fashions and moods of these eras as well as showing how the skills, techniques and understanding of craftsmen have evolved. Our understanding of the evolution of the style and manufacturing techniques is crucial in the development and creation of our fine jewellery collections today.
