Renaissance & Elizabethan Era Jewelry
Queen Elizabeth I, last member of the House of
Tudor, was Queen of England from 1558-1603. This period, known as the Elizabethan Era, took place during the
European Renaissance period, which is said to have occurred from approximately 1300 to 1700. Renaissance,
which means “rebirth” in French, was the bridge connecting the dark Middle Ages with the modern age,
characterized by a resurgence of the once-forgotten ancient Greek and Roman cultures across many areas
including, science, art, music and fashion.
