Sterling Jewelry

As the wheels turned into the Industrial Revolution, so they punctuated the mass of sterling silver jewelry that poured out of the Birmingham, England area beginning in the 1770s and slowly increasing to gain a wild popularity through the late 1890s.  Renewed interest in ancient methods such as chasing and repousse' along with brand new techniques like machine-engraving combined to decorate each piece with rich nature-inspired symbolism, some of the most popular motifs being flowers, foliage and birds.  As a new 'working' aesthetic was build with the mass movement into the Industrial era, these pieces were worn proudly and heavily.  We find and offer the best remaining examples of these delightful handmade pieces.
