Time for a romance Renaissance Courtship was developed during the 16th century Renaissance. Men such as lords, knights, and noblemen would try to impress the women of Queen Elizabeth’s royal court with gifts, poetry, or other things that they enjoyed. This romantic contribution of making a favorable impression was made vastly easier with another of the Renaissance time periods contributions to romance: colorful gemstones, earning the Renaissance the esteemed title of “the jewel age.”
Jewelry became spectacularly eccentric with the use of faceted colorful gemstones. It was this bestowal that has made the greatest influence on future jewelry craftsmen and collectors. You can forgo the jerkin and codpiece and all that courtly nonsense. We have a much easier way to create a romance Renaissance. In our Elizabeth Collection she’ll receive the romantic gifts of regal amethyst, elegant London blue topaz and sunny citrine, along with a sprinkling of white diamonds.
Lavish cabochons of amethyst and London blue topaz are expertly faceted from underneath, creating a smooth brilliance much like sun reflecting on raindrops and then set in warm and inviting 18K rose gold.
