At Fred Leighton, our promise is to continually re-imagine all that can be done with diamonds. In keeping with this rich tradition of innovation, we introduce our first jewelry designs made by combining two of the most enduring materials: diamonds and fine ceramic. Much like diamonds, fine ceramic made from zirconia is exceptionally durable. Fred Leighton fine ceramic is the highest quality available and achieves a superior luster that never fades. Smooth, sensual and exquisite – this material is as pleasing to the hand as it is to the eye.

1714 to 1837 The Georgian period refers to the 120+ year period of English history in which King Georges I, II, III and IV reigned (1714 to 1837). Jewelry from this period is quite rare because so many Georgian pieces have been taken apart or reworked to fit the style of successive periods. Notable characteristics of include large regal gemstones, sculptural and weighty metal, and bow and teardrop motifs. A defining characteristic of the period is the way in which diamonds and gemstones were set in closed back metal with foil underneath in order to highlight the brilliance.
