Happy Anniversary to Edward VII & Queen Alexandra!

On this day in 1863, Alexandra of Denmark married Edward, Prince of Wales.

In 1901 upon the death of Edward's mother, Queen Victoria, the couple ascended to the thrones of Great Britain as King and Queen Consort of the United Kingdom and Emperor & Empress of India. Though Edward was a bit of a troublemaker, he still holds a special place in our hearts as the namesake of the Edwardian era - a moment in jewelry history when diamonds, pearls and intricate, elegant platinum-work reigned supreme. 

There may have been a few decades between the couples' wedding and their coronations, but we think they aged quite well!
