This listing is for the item only. This beautiful piece was made during the Georgian Period! The Georgian Period is world famous for bearing some of the finest handmade silver jewelry ever. This period started in the 1700's and lasted until the early 1800's. The chasing technique is a very difficult silversmith process when the artist uses a nail like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns within the metal work.This process was very difficult and only the best jewelers were trained in the process. 833 Silver was used only in Europe in countries such as Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Scandinavian countries. This purity of silver was used due to the silver coinage of the time being made out of that purity of silver, it was easier for the artist to melt and flatten out silver coins to get a direct purity for their silver making.
