ABOUT THIS BROOCH

A youthful Bacchus, Roman god of wine and revelry, comes alive in this exquisitely carved, thick, high-relief coral cameo, in rich reddish-orange coral. The cameo is elegantly presented in a restrained 14 karat yellow gold frame adorned with a rope motif border. A small section of the wreath, on the right side, is apparently missing, but has been smoothed over by a lapidary (and the flaw is reflected in the price). This splendid and stunning jewel, from nineteenth-century Italy, measures 1 13/16 inches high by 1 1/2 inches across.

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.
