ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

This stellar jewel from 19th century France, expertly hand fabricated in darkened silver over 18K gold, will light up the sky, day or night, with a scintillating array of bright-white and sparkling European-cut, rose-cut, and old mine-cut diamonds - all together weighing just shy of 6.00 carats. The six diamond-set rays radiate with a half dozen sizable sparklers, all orbiting a 1.03 carat nucleus for an explosive blast celestial light. A superb, stunning, and versatile antique jewel (wearable as both a necklace pendant and brooch), measuring just over 1 and 1/4 inch diameter. Sterling silver chain measures 18-inch chain.

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.
