Fashion History, 15th century jewellery

picmonkey-image-jewelshey guys, this is part of the FASHION HISTORY SERIES i’m writing, I also focused this post on 15h century England. and what goes perfect with a beautiful dress…yes, you guessed it… JEWELLERY. AMAZING STONES, PEARLS, diamonds, EMERALDS, SAPHIRES, GOLD, BRONZE, ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE, THEY USED IT IN THIS ERA. perfectly made into necklaces, tiaras, rings, earings, even books & pens. These metalsmiths were true artists.
Few of the jewels used in the Tudor era have remained. Most of the crown jewels were destroyed by Oliver Cromwell when England became a Commonwealth. However, a few have survived and are now part of the present set of Crown Jewels.
The Tudor Crown, also known as Henry VIII’s Crown, was the imperial and state crown used by the monarchs of England and Great Britain from around the time of Henry VIII up to the English Civil War in 1649. It was described by the art historian Sir Roy Strong as “a masterpiece of early Tudor jeweller’s art”, and its form has been compared to the crown of the Holy Roman Empire.henry_viiis_crown
