ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Enthralling. Enchanting. Entrancing. This extraordinary stone--a 30.00 carat chrysoberyl cat's eye--is a wonder to behold. The lemony-sage green stone glows with a soft light and displays the captivating gemological phenomenon known as chatoyancy (the cat's eye effect). Surrounded by a buttery satin-finish yellow gold frame, accented with tiny gold spheres, the striking neoclassical pendant suspends from a substantial gleaming gold 18 1/2-inch chain. And, it doesn't stop there; the clasp also features a chrysoberyl in a setting that perfectly complements the pendant. A singular and distinctively stunning beauty. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, circa 1900. Accompanied by a gem report by Stone Group Lab stating the stones are natural with no treatment.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
