ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

Evocative of a gracefully swirling vine, or maybe a stylized hot air balloon, this distinctively stunning late-Victorian pendant hints at the Art Nouveau movement that waits just around the corner. Aglitter with lively old mine, European, and Swiss cut diamonds, its intriguing asymmetrical design highlights a trio of light-loving European cut diamonds (total weight, .90 carat), while a diamond-set drop dances below. Hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold, it boasts an unusual provenance--Prague, according to the hallmarks. This rare and ravishing pendant can also be worn as a brooch by attaching its pin finding. Total diamond weight, 2.70 carats. Chain measures 18 inches.

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.
