Early twentieth century, Edwardian and Belle Epoque earrings are distinguished from antique earrings by their lightness and delicacy. They were most commonly made of gold or platinum which was just beginning to be widely used. Platinum allowed for fine, crisp yet strong settings. Delicate earrings often in the garland style complemented the delicate fashions and delicate or monochromatic colours of these times. The most sought after was diamond and pearl jewellery set in platinum.
