ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A rare specimen indeed: a  golden butterfly is perfectly preserved from latter Victorian/Edwardian times (circa 1900). Elongated pear-shaped apple green peridots and bright white and sparkling old mine-cut diamonds make up the wings, while a slender old mine cut marquise and round diamond compose the body. And, just for fun, two rare Russian green demantoid garnets are set into the eyes. Sweet and lovely as can be, it suspends from a new chain that adjusts to 16 inches. Total diamond weight - 1.40 carats, total gemstone weight - 2.05 carats. Condition note: gemstones show some wear.

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.
